The Richard McCarthy Lecture Series was founded in 2006 through the generous support of Dr. Richard McCarthy and Dr. Craig Howard and is designed to bring together students, faculty, and community members to access cutting edge research in the field of War and Society. Over the years, the McCarthy Lecture Series has provided the campus and Hattiesburg communities a broad range of programming, ranging from a panel discussion led by veterans of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to more academic programs including talks by leading historians of War and Society and Military History, such as Jeremy Black, Dennis Showalter, Gary Sheffield, Brian Linn, Wayne Lee, and John Lynn, just to name a few. The Richard McCarthy Lecture Series is central to the Center for the Study of War and Society’s continuing community outreach efforts.
