Tragedy, Catharsis, and Reconciliation: Voices from Ancient and Modern Warfare

A semester-long humanities course for veterans with three related public events to be offered three times.


Valencia College Professors of Humanities Dr. Sean Lake and Julie Montione are applying as co-Project Directors to this program, Dialogues on the Experience of War. Through this project, Professors Lake and Montione will develop a veterans-only course entitled “Voices from Ancient and Modern Warfare.” The course will be developed during fall 2017 semester and offered spring 2018, fall 2018, and spring 2019 before the end of the grant period. The course is organized to train students as discussion leaders in the content of Classical texts, how to connect these texts to current veteran experiences and in the skills needed to lead discussion groups. The course will be structured with a service learning course component, and students will be prepared to lead discussions with other veterans and members of the community. The program centers around three essential questions with related course material to begin each discussion, and a community activity for each topic.
