War at Home and Abroad: A Digital History Project

3 people reading a book.

War is one of the most common historical stories. While past historians have almost exclusively reported on the politics, battles and influential decision-makers surrounding war, a new digital history project at CSUSM seeks to share a different story: the voices of U.S. veterans, especially those who have served in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.

Directed by history professors Jill Watts, Ibrahim Al-Marashi and Kimber Quinney and inspired by the foundational input of Associate Dean Patricia Seleski, the War at Home and Abroad (WAHA) digital history project explores the impact of war through the memories told by veterans, their families and the nation’s home front community members.
