An Oral History Project Dedicated to Women and War

The creation of a digital archive of oral histories of women in the military to be used in the classroom and the training of faculty and students in the professional practice of oral history.

Military City, USA: An Oral History Project Dedicated to Women and War is a two-year collaborative project between faculty at two Hispanic-Serving Institutions, the University of Texas at San Antonio and Our Lady of the Lake University, designed to integrate oral history practices into humanities education and professional training. Just as importantly, the grant will expand the scope of traditional military history for students and faculty to better understand the militarization of women's lives from World War II to the present. The project takes advantage of this unique time in contemporary society whereby as of 2016, three years after the un/official end of the Global War on Terror, women are eligible for all roles within the U.S military including combat. As women begin to occupy these historically exclusive male positions, our project will be one of the first to document and analyze the significance of female military combat participation.
