War & Memory Podcast: New Episode!
Posted on November 10, 2017 by Susan McCready
Douglas Bristol, Associate Professor of History at the University of Southern Mississippi and fellow of the Dale Center for the Study of War and Society discusses integration in the US military from Truman's 1948 executive order that ended the segregation of African-American troops, through Trump's order to bar transgender troops from serving. The discussion touches on the expansion of military roles for women and Don't Ask Don't Tell in the context of broader societal changes. While the military is a conservative and tradition bound institution, it has nevertheless led the way in some instances of integration in postwar American society. Dr. Bristol talks about that paradox and what it might mean for the fate of transgender Americans currently serving openly in the US military.
