The 2024 LCpl. Benjamin W. Schmidt Symposium on War, Conflict and Society will feature leading historians, scholars and policy makers to discuss the legacies of the Korean War.

Far from a “forgotten war,” the Korean War inaugurated police action as a new kind of warfare, made the Cold War hot and began a series of “forever wars” that continue to shape international politics and diplomacy.

  • Friday, March 22 — Dawn Alexandrea Berry, Ph.D., will deliver the keynote address about the efforts of the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency to find, identify and repatriate the remains of servicemembers killed in the Korean War. 
  • Saturday, March 23 — A panel will feature experts from across the social sciences and the policymaking world, who will discuss the causes, experiences and long-lasting consequences of a war that has yet to officially end.
