Duty and War's Impact on Women

A preparatory workshop and literary discussion program on the theme of duty and women’s experience of war from World War I to the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts, to be offered to veterans and civilians in five locations in Nevada over a two-year period.

Duty: War’s Impact on Women is a two year discussion group program. Preparatory Leaders will lead discussions surrounding the theme of duty, exploring duty towards homecoming and reintegration through the lens of women's literature; and develop a cadre of prepared discussion leaders who will facilitate Discussion groups in the state of Nevada, which is largely underserved by the humanities and overburdened with the state’s high percentage of veterans. Duty: War’s Impact on Women will use humanities sources and the Socratic Method to introduce the topic of women’s service in war, provide opportunities to build understanding about the experiences of service members and issues veterans face as they return to civilian life, and to promote the humanities through an exploration of women’s literature.
