Justice and War: The Experiences of Military Personnel and their Families

A facilitator training program and subsequent public discussion series on justice and war for 25-30 veterans and civilians in the Indianapolis area, and a publicly-accessible online platform for related humanities, pedagogical, and training resources.

The “Justice and War: The Experiences of Military Personnel and their Families” program works with veterans, active service members, their families, and civilians to explore the relationship between the lived experiences of war and concepts of justice. Comparing two key moments in US history—the Spanish-American War and the Vietnam War—we will put participants’ own experiences in dialogue with the past by focusing on: historical justice; duty and justice; heroism and justice; suffering and justice; loyalty and justice; and patriotism and justice. There are 4 outputs of this project: 1) a new university course on justice and war; 2) a 3-seminar public humanities program, which will be offered twice over the course of the funding period; 3) a training program for seminar leaders; 4) and an open access, online platform that includes pedagogical materials, training frameworks, historical documents, and video so that the program can be replicated in other communities.
