Reporting World War II: American Correspondents at the Front-Lines

April 23rd-24th, 2020

The Institute on World War II and the Human Experience at Florida State University, Contemporary History Institute at Ohio University, Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, Fordham University Press and Stars and Stripes presents Reporting World War II: American Correspondents at the Front-Lines at Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.

This international conference brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars who will examine how American journalists and newspapers covered World War II. The conference intends to consider war-time reporting prior to the entrance into the conflict and how American correspondents followed GIs across the globe after the December 7, 1941, Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.  The role of the journalists as objective reporters, propagandists, intelligence agents, and as witnesses to history are among the themes explored at this conference. Papers will consider the contribution of African American, Jewish, and women reporters as journalists and the unique work of correspondents serving in uniform.
