Study Away Virtual Event: Chase Lecture Series, U.S. Civil-Military Relations with Lionel Beehner

Date, time, location

Date Wednesday, November 18, 2020

Time 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Bard Globalization and International Affairs Program (BGIA) is pleased to present the Chace Lecture Series, which seeks to explore what’s really behind today’s headlines with leading experts. We're looking at the United Nations in its 75th year, disinformation and fake news regarding the U.S. elections, and how U.S. civil-military relations have changed.

What is war today? It is no longer just guns and tanks on a battlefield, as confrontations have moved online. How do we look at civil military relations, amid extreme polarization?

BGIA professor Lionel Beehner is out with a new book that touches on these issues: Reconsidering American Civil Military Relations: The Military, Society, Politics, and Modern War.

Join us for one-hour to dive into Professor Beehner's findings. Register online to participate.
