The Experience of War: Moral Transformation, Injury, and Repair

A discussion series on war and morality, principally for veterans from Hunter College and other campuses of the CUNY system.

The Experience of War: Moral Injury and Transformation” integrates a discussion series and curriculum development targeted to military veterans. First, discussion leaders will be trained to facilitate intensive reading and discussion of monumental works in the humanities that were selected for their emphasis on the moral complexity of human experience. These texts will be paired with contemporary works that apply humanistic perspectives to the experience of wars both ancient and modern. Second, groups of veterans will meet for a series of discussions and related capstone experiences through which they will interact with distinguished researchers in this important area of inquiry. Through the theme of moral injury and transformation, we will guide discussion participants to probe a variety of forms of human activity that expand our moral imagination to understand experience, offer relief, extend opportunities for grief, and open spaces to recognize and lay claim to triumph.
