Irregular Warfare: Experiences Across the Civil-Military Divide

A preparatory training program, two undergraduate bridge programs, and two discussion series for veterans on the experience of irregular or guerrilla warfare.

This project focuses on the experience of guerrilla and counter-insurgency conflicts, in which the fate of military personnel and civilians are intimately entwined. Drawing primarily on fiction and memoirs from four historical case-studies, the program begins with a preparatory 2-week program for 12-18 discussion leaders in June 2017, offered with the participation of Brown faculty and the Naval War College, and staff from the Student Veterans offices at Brown and other institutions. We will offer a bridge program for student veterans entering Brown and other academic institutions in the Providence area, in August 2017 and August 2018, over four days each time. The program will focus on the value and significance of humanities sources in civilian-military dialogue on the experience of war. The program will include an ongoing series of discussions on humanities sources on the experience of war, through the academic years 17-18 and 18-19 and open to veterans and interested public.
