Fall Lectures — The New York Military Affairs Symposium (Talks FREE and Open to the Public)

This may sound geeky, but it is actually quite fun and often brilliant.

The New York Military Affairs Symposium meets weekly during the Spring and Fall and the organizers pride themselves as hosting the best military historians devoted to somewhat specialized subjects in a broader context. For those of us committed to the idea of a civilian army with democratic rule, the subject of weaponry and military campaigns comprise history lessons we never had the opportunity to hear taught by experts.


Check out their website for details, podcasts, book information, goodies  galore:

We strongly hope and suggest that you donate, become a patron and/or subscribe.

NYMAS is devoted to increasing public
knowledge, awareness, and understanding
of the interrelationship of war, society, and
culture through the presentation and
dissemination of diverse scholarly viewpoints.
