The Sosh Research Lab kicked off this semester by supporting a tailor-made book conference in support of Dr. Jason Warner and his co-authors’ manuscript on the Islamic State in Africa.
This fantastic event included resident experts from the Combating Terrorism Center, guest scholars from both the academic and policy realms, and multiple participants joining the conversation via teleconference. Working together over multiple sessions in Jefferson Hall, this impressive group offered critical insights on the book draft and helped the team of authors prepare their next steps for finishing the project.
The Sosh Research Lab has a full slate of activities planned for this semester. Stay tuned for the latest on salons with guest reviewers, departmental research presentations, and research workshops suited for in-progress work at various stages of development.
The Sosh Research Lab provides venues for faculty to present their research to new audiences. Here, CPT Kyle Wolfley, an assistant professor of International Affairs, describes his research on military statecraft and multinational exercises to participants at Senior Conference.
CDT Olivia Simon briefs AMB Doug Lute about her thesis project looking at the political behavior of retired flag officers. This work was part of a larger project that was recently published with MAJ Zach Griffiths in Armed Forces and Society (https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/0095327X19889982)
The Army War College's Strategic Studies Institute recently published the conference monograph for last year's Senior Conference: "The Emerging Environment in the Indo-Pacific: Drivers, Directions, and Decisions."
