Fiction & Fact: A Dialogue with Veterans

Four discussion programs for Arkansas veterans and others on the themes of battlefield and homefront, World War I, Vietnam, and war and witness.
 

Fiction & Fact: A War Dialogue with Veterans provides opportunities for veterans to reflect on the war and the homecoming experiences through facilitated discussions based on different Humanities sources: fiction, nonfiction, poetry, film, art, museum exhibits, and oral histories. These sources draw chiefly from the First World War, the war in Vietnam, and the second war in Iraq. Preparatory retreats for the facilitators familiarize them with the source material, foster their shared inquiry techniques, and sensitize them to this particular audience. Over two years, veterans may participate in any of four distinct units focusing on these themes: (1) Battlefield and Homefront; (2) World War I; (3) Vietnam; and (4) War and Witness. Each unit involves two weekend discussion retreats for that set of veterans; a group blog supplements the retreat discussions. Veteran-civilian interactions occur through a film series and through special panels at the Arkansas Literary Festival.

Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War - A Traveling Exhibition to Libraries

Using the Constitution as the cohesive thread, the 1,000-square-foot panel exhibition offers a perspective on Abraham Lincoln that focuses on his struggle to meet the political and constitutional challenges of the Civil War. Organized thematically, the exhibition explores how Lincoln used the Constitution to confront three intertwined crises of the war -- the secession of Southern states, slavery, and wartime civil liberties. Reproductions of significant documents signed by Lincoln, including the Emancipation Proclamation, the Thirteenth Amendment, and the Order to Blockade the Southern Ports -- the official start of the Civil War -- are included in the exhibition.
