The Experience of War

A series of discussion sessions for an undergraduate course on war and military service, to be conducted at the University of Oklahoma.

This program will introduce veterans to the humanities and through the humanities to a dialogue based on their own experiences. As the Director of this program at the University of Oklahoma, I will prepare a course designed to do for other veterans what the humanities did for me. The course, "The Experience of War," will use original written sources and other media to introduce veterans to the humanities. We will ask veterans to use the humanities and their own experience to think about, and express their thoughts on, war as experienced by others through history and by themselves. They will find, first, that they have experienced what generations of soldiers have experienced before, and, second, they will find the words to describe their own experiences, and will thereby be able to articulate that experience, and become mentors for other veterans and for students who are not veterans, and for the community at large.
