The Pritzker Military Museum & Library presents its 2022 Symposium in honor of Dr. Margaret MacMillan.
This year's Symposium will address the theme “What is Military History Today?”
Dr. Margaret MacMillan, the recipient of the 2021 Pritzker Military Museum & Library’s Literature Award for Lifetime Achievement in Military Writing, will be featured at the Museum & Library’s annual symposium scheduled for March 31-April 1, 2022. The symposium will consider the current state of military history under the theme of “What is Military History Today.” Individual panel sessions will explore and identify today’s challenges in researching, writing, and presenting military history, and how they are impacted by the needs and interests of diverse audiences. Perspectives from the academic community, military professionals, and the general public will be considered.
the most challenging aspect seems is to get the basics right and not to ride on mythology, seemingly there are much better presentations now than those run by the ivory tower of academia, a good alternative for refreshing insights are podcast such as the Napoleonicist, Napoleon Quarterly or all those of Real Time History (funny how those later guys got all names correclty pronounced - where academics abysmaly fail.)
