Thesis Description:

A School for the Nation? Military Institutions and the Boundaries of Nationality
Krebs’ dissertation, “A School for the Nation? Military Institutions and the Boundaries of Nationality,” explored the political consequences of patterns of military inclusion and exclusion in several historical and national contexts, including the United States, Israel, and imperial Germany. In it, Krebs surveyed the political legacy of the desegregation of the U.S. armed forces, including a case study of African-Americans’ military service in the 20th century which explained why black claims-making premised upon military service failed to move white audiences after World War I.
