Blurred Boundaries: The Experience of War and Its Aftermath

Two discussion programs on the experience of war and its aftermath for student veterans, active-duty service members, and members of the community, and a preparatory program for discussion leaders, on the Civil War and Vietnam.


This project draws together veterans, their families, and community members in an effort to understand the multivalent nature of war and military experience through the reading and discussion of multi-modal texts in the humanities, including film, memoir, fiction, and photography. Such texts not only record the sociopolitical upheaval of war, but they also provide rich explorations of inner conflict experienced by combatants. Through contemplation and discussion of accounts of 2 wars, the American Civil War and the American War in Vietnam, accounts told through different modes of storytelling, we hope to open new possibilities for understanding war and its effect on individuals and communities.
