About Us

The Center for the Study of Force and Diplomacy (CENFAD), founded in 1993 by Drs. Richard Immerman, Russell Weigley, and David Rosenberg, fosters interdisciplinary faculty and student research on the historic and contemporary use of force and diplomacy in a global context. CENFAD is housed within Temple University’s History Department.

The Marvin Wachman Director of CENFAD, Dr. Richard Immerman, reports to the Dean of the College of Liberal Arts at Temple University and to CENFAD’s Board of Advisors. CENFAD sponsors lectures, colloquia, workshops, and conferences on an ongoing basis (listed under News and Events); and various multi-year projects.

Each year, CENFAD gives several prizes to recognize and support undergraduate and graduate research in military, diplomatic, and international history. CENFAD reports its activities twice a year in its newsletter Strategic Visions Magazine.

CENFAD is the home of the Hertog Program in Grand Strategy. Click here to learn more, read the course syllabus, and read essays produced by the seminar.
