Dialogues on the Experience of War

A literature and film discussion program, focusing on World War I and Vietnam, for veterans in Alabama communities, and two related semester-length courses in Alabama state correctional facilities.

Veterans, family members, and others will join past and present through six reading-discussion programs in six participating communities in Alabama, as well as in two semester-length courses offered in state correctional facilities in Alabama. Each discussion will be based on a different genre—fiction, memoir, and film—on World War One and the Vietnam War. Reading-discussion sessions will be led by NEH discussion leaders who have been prepared in a three-day residential program led by two content experts (one who is a veteran); one Veterans Administration counselor (also a veteran); one English professor who is an expert discussion leader (and also a veteran); one humanities council program director who has worked with groups on a similar program.
