U.S. Women Veteran's Experiences of War

Jones awarded NEH grant to document 100 years of women veteran's war experiences

Faculty Associate Marian Moser Jones has been awarded a $100,000 grant from the National Endowment of Humanities (NEH), to lead the project, "100 years of American Women in Uniform," as part of the NEH "Dialogues on Experiences of War" program. The project will focus on veteran experiences during two periods of conflict: World War I and the recent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Initial recruitment will engage with some of the 850 student-veterans at the University of Maryland (UMD) campus. Participants will comparatively discuss women’s war memoirs; view art, media, and design by female veterans; and tour major collections of military artifacts, uniforms, and war memorabilia from female veterans.

Dr. Moser Jones will be partnering on the project with Margaret Vining and Dr. Bart Hacker, curators at the Division of Armed Forces History at the Smithsonian Museum of American History in Washington; Patri O'Gan, project manager in the Division; and Dr. Laura Browder, author of When Janey Comes Marching Home, a book on women OIF / OEF combat veterans.
