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, Jeffrey Gray, Brian Linn, Wayne Lee, and
John Lynn, just to name a few. The Richard McCarthy Lecture Series is central to the
Dale Center for the Study of War & Society’s continuing community outreach efforts.
