Voices of War: Comparative Perspectives

A graduate-level course at Ohio State University and two discussion groups in the Columbus, Ohio, area.

This program will train graduate students to conduct discussion sessions with local veterans and engage in a respectful dialogue founded upon a shared intellectual interest for humanities sources. Columbus, Ohio, is home to over 110,000 veterans, and over 1,800 veterans, dependents and Active Duty, National Guard and Reserve members are attending classes at Ohio State. Literature, films, and war memoirs will be used to provide insights into the experiences of deployment, combat and homecoming. The preparatory program for discussion leaders and the discussion sessions with veterans will focus on four topics, each associated with a conflict: the American Civil War and the Appropriation of Memory; the Wars in Afghanistan and the Ambiguity of Victory; World War I and the Trauma of War; and the Iraq War and the Soldier Experience.
