Veterans' Voices: A Reading and Discussion Series

The expansion of a 2017 Dialogues on the Experience of War public discussion series on the themes of service, honor, and justice, which would include additional locations, new institutional partners, and enhanced training programs for discussion leaders.

Humanities Texas (HTx) requests a $99,959 Dialogues on the Experience of War Grant to continue expanding our Veterans’ Voices program in three 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 preparatory programs to train Discussion Leaders to conduct discussion groups in their communities. HTx will then organize Veterans’ Voices discussion programs in College Station, Denton, and El Paso in collaboration with educational institutions in each city.
