Veterans’ Voices: A Reading and Discussion Series

Preparatory training programs and discussion groups in five Texas cities about the experience of war and military service from ancient times to the present.

Humanities Texas (HTx) requests a $99,000 Dialogues on the Experience of War Grant to expand our Veterans’ Voices program to five Texas cities. These programs bring veterans, military families, and members of the public together to read aloud from classical and literary texts about war, military service, and the return to civilian life. After the readings, experienced discussion leaders facilitate conversations among participants, exploring how the texts relate to their experiences and allowing for meaningful reflection on combat and civic responsibility. We have assembled an impressive task force of veterans and civilians with experience working with returning veterans and their families. HTx will organize a preparatory program to train NEH discussion leaders to conduct discussion groups in their communities. HTx will then organize Veterans’ Voices programs in Austin, College Station, Houston, El Paso, and San Antonio in collaboration with educational institutions in each city.
