Dr. Dewey Browder, chair of the APSU Department of History and Philosophy, has been invited to join the Oxford Round Table at Oxford, England.

Founded in 1989, the Oxford Round Table is a colloquium for small groups of academic, governmental and business leaders to engage in discussions of contemporary public policy that affects nations and states worldwide.

To be held Aug. 12-17 at Oxford, the topic of this year's meeting is “History and International Politics: A Guide to the 21st Century.” Browder will discuss “The Military and State Building: Lessons of History.”

Each year, the Round Table invites about 35 participants, based on nominations. The annual proceedings are published in the Forum on Public Policy, a journal of the Round Table.

Browder came to APSU in 1992, after serving on the faculty at West Point. He is a retired U.S. Army officer with a Ph.D. in European history. While in the Army, Browder lived 14 years in Europe where he observed German-American relations on a first-hand basis.

In addition to numerous scholarly articles and paper presentations, Browder was among the few selected to contribute to the landmark “Encyclopedia of World War II.” He also is the author of two books, published by Mellen Press: “Americans in Post-World War II Germany” and “Teachers, Tinkers, Neighbors and Nuisances.”

Most recently, he has been the point person in developing and launching the Master of Arts in Military History, the only one of its kind in Tennessee and one of a few in the nation.
