The University of Southern Mississippi’s (USM) Dale Center for the Study of War & SocietyThe fall War & Society Roundtable, a partnership between The University of Southern Mississippi’s (USM) Dale Center for the Study of War & Society and the Hattiesburg, Petal, and Forrest County Public Library (HPL), continues Oct. 13 at 6 p.m. and Nov. 10 at 6 p.m. with online programming.

“The lineup for the fall is extremely exciting, anchored by an October guest appearance via Zoom by U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum historian Rebecca Erbelding,” said Dr. Joshua Haynes, coordinator of this year’s roundtable series. “HPL Director Sean Farrell organized this appearance, which will focus on the book The Unwanted: America, Auschwitz and a Village Caught in Between by Michael Dobbs. “The truncated fall schedule concludes in November with USM History professor Dr. Douglas Bristol moderating a discussion of Harp of Burma, sometimes referred to as the Asian All Quiet on the Western Front.”

Meetings will be held virtually. For Zoom IDs/links, email Sean Farrell, director of the Hattiesburg Library, at sean@hpfc.lib.ms.us. Books are available for checkout at the circulation desk of the Hattiesburg Library at 329 Hardy Street.

The War and Society Roundtable program is now in its 14th year. For more information regarding the War & Society Roundtable series, contact Dr. Haynes at joshua.haynes@usm.edu or call 601.266.5374.
