A Soldier's Place: Veterans and Civilians Speaking About War

A year-long training and discussion program organized by faculty at National University, in collaboration with the Veteran Center and veteran-student alumni.

A Soldier’s Place: Veterans and Civilians Speaking about War is a collaborative project between faculty in National University’s College of Letters and Sciences, Veteran Center, and veteran-student alumni to conduct a year-long training and discussion program under the auspices of the NEH “Dialogues on the Experiences of War” grant. The project uses humanities sources to achieve two goals: first, to explore war and the themes of trauma, loyalty, heroism, and homecoming and their effects on individuals and societies and, second, to develop a space for veterans and others to have meaningful and transformative conversations through facilitated discussions focused on those themes. With a repertoire of epic poetry, narrative non-fiction, military biography, film, and memoir, the humanities provide important intellectual and cultural frames which can give veterans the perspective they need in order to understand better what they have seen, what they have done, and what has been done to them.
