Military Humanities (MILHUM)
Engaging teaching and research at the intersection of the armed forces, the humanities, and society
MILHUM applies perspectives and methodologies from the humanities on the study of the military profession and war. The concept “military humanities” constitutes an argument that the humanities bring unique contributions to the development of skills and knowledge vital for the military profession in the 21st century, and it complements the military sciences in the education of military professionals.
“Military Humanities” is a field of inquiry using perspectives from various humanities disciplines and social sciences to explore connections between the armed forces, war and its aftermath, and society and culture more broadly.
The MILHUM research group is a network for educators and researchers aiming to enable conversations and collaborations across academic disciplines, and between the armed forces and the higher education sector. Based at the NDUC and with members from its many schools participating in its activities, the MILHUM research group also includes international partners.
