Carson Teuscher is a Ph.D. candidate specializing in Military History at Ohio State University and a 2020–21 Hans J. Morgenthau fellow in Grand Strategy at Notre Dame's International Security Center (NDISC). His research focuses on coalition warfare, alliance building, multinational operations, and intercultural friction in war.
Carson's dissertation assesses multinational military operations in the Mediterranean during World War II. Focusing primarily on the Allied struggle through Italy from 1943 to 1945, he seeks to understand how the Allied war machine functioned practically—not just politically—as it wove together a polyglot force that came to include Brazilians, Poles, Italians, North Africans, Indians, and Greeks, among other nationalities. By globalizing the history of Allied military cooperation in the Mediterranean, he hopes to historicize a form of fighting that has become ubiquitous in western military operations today.
