America's Wars: Individual Experience and Collective Memory

A two-year project to incorporate the perspectives of veterans into courses in English, history, philosophy, psychology, and sociology, to support two symposia, one for faculty, one for students, and to create a digital archive of oral histories.

Wake Technical Community College’s (WTCC) proposed project, America’s Wars: Individual Experience and Collective Memory will render more visible the experience of war by incorporating the perspectives of veterans into courses within the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences division. The America’s Wars project will begin in July 2016 with four main activities: 1) faculty symposia led by scholars and experts; 2) student symposia with expert-led lecture/discussions; 3) incorporation of new material into English, History, Philosophy, Psychology, and Sociology courses; and 4) the creation of a digitally-archived oral history. The faculty and student symposia will be led by faculty from Duke University, UNC-Chapel Hill, UNC-Charlotte, and North Carolina State University, as well as by war veterans and public historians.
