Foster Chamberlin received his PhD in modern European history with a specialization in Spain from the University of California San Diego in 2017. His research focuses on how the cultures of military institutions in Europe influenced the course of the continent’s violent conflicts from 1914–1945 and contributed to the fall of interwar democratic regimes. His book project traces the development of the organizational culture of Spain’s gendarmerie, the Civil Guard, from its founding in the mid-nineteenth century through the tumultuous Second Republic period in the 1930s that preceded the Spanish Civil War. Chamberlin has published articles in War & Society and European History Quarterly, among other journals,and is also the host of a Spanish history podcast called Historias. Prior to coming to NAU, he taught at Bilkent and Boğaziçi universities in Turkey. At NAU, he looks forward to bringing his own experiences living in Spain and Turkey into his world history teaching as well as bringing a global perspective to NAU’s modern European history courses.
