Echoes of War

A public discussion program offered by the Minnesota Humanities Center for veterans to explore the lived and recorded experiences of war through literature and war memorials.

Echoes of War, a project of the Minnesota Humanities Center, will explore how war is remembered and memorialized in contrast to and relationship with the lived experiences of Veterans. This project will use Standing Down: From Warrior to Civilian, an anthology by Great Books Foundation, as its core resource and it will involve the study of war memorials at the Minnesota State Capitol. Echoes of War will be co-lead by Dr. Susannah Ottaway, a professor of history at Carleton College, and Trista Matascastillo, Humanities Center program officer and 16-year Veteran. Ten NEH Discussion Leaders will participate in an immersive 5-day residential preparatory program that will prepare them to lead subsequent public discussions. The preparatory program will involves intensive grounding in the literature of war, training in discussion facilitation, and an examination of war memorials. A three-part public discussion series will be held at the Minnesota Humanities Center, St. Paul, and at Carleton
