War and Healing: A Century of Veterans’ Reintegration

A two-day intensive training seminar followed by two four-week discussion programs for veterans in the Miami, Florida area.

War and Healing, overseen by Florida International University (FIU), and supported by the Wolfsonian-FIU Museum, the Florida State University Institute for World War II and the Human Experience, and the Miami Vet Center of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), has three primary goals. First, it will enable Miami-area veterans to explore the process of post-service reintegration by examining primary sources, works of fiction and non-fiction, artwork, and audiovisual materials focused on the aftermaths of World War I, World War II, the Vietnam War, and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Second, it will create a network of NEH-trained discussion facilitators equipped to offer veteran-focused discussion groups at diverse Florida institutions. Finally, it will serve as a potential model for how universities and Department of Veterans Affairs facilities may partner to offer compelling, community-based, humanities-centered programming.
