Dialogues on the Experience of War: A Difficult Heritage. Paper presented at the Society for Historical Archaeology (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Dialogues on the Experience of War: A Difficult Heritage. Paper presented at the Society for Historical Archaeology
Author: Jennifer Mckinnon
Author: Anne Ticknor
Author: Anna Froula
Abstract: War in the Pacific: Difficult Heritage recently engaged veterans, veteran families, and WWII survivors on the Pacific island of Saipan in considering how conflict heritage can be seen as universal to humanity and how it can be used to examine the veteran’s experience. The starting point for this consideration was to focus on the historical and contemporary warrior/veteran’s experiences as it relates to collective human experience of war and how we might come to understand and interpret the heritage created through past conflicts as shared, collective heritage. The project trained local community members to lead discussion focused on the Spanish-Chamorro Wars of the 17th century and the WWII Battle of Saipan, as bookends to the history of resistance and aggressions in the Mariana Islands. A multi-vocal approach was used to explore and discuss terrestrial and underwater heritage, film, memoirs, children’s literature, poetry, and graphic novels on the subject of war.

War in the Pacific: Difficult Heritage (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: War in the Pacific: Difficult Heritage
Author: Jennifer Mckinnon
Author: Anne Ticknor
Author: Anna Froula
Abstract: War in the Pacific: Difficult Heritage, a National Endowment for the Humanities-funded project of East Carolina University in partnership with the Northern Marianas Humanities Council and the Saipan Historic Preservation Office, engages veterans of contemporary wars, surviving civilian participants of WWII, and families of military service personnel in considering how difficult heritage can be seen as universal to humanity and how it can be used to examine the veteran’s experience and even heal and renew. The starting point for this consideration is to focus on the historical and contemporary warrior/veteran’s experience as it relates to our collective human experience of war and how we might come to understand and interpret the heritage created through conflicts as shared, collective heritage. This process is accomplished through the development of a program that train local Saipanese community members with experience and interest in humanities, history and veteran affairs to be discussion leaders who will conduct humanities discussion groups with local, primarily Chamorro and Carolinian, veterans. The wars chosen are the Spanish-Chamorro Wars of the 17th century and the WWII Battle of Saipan as bookends to the history of resistance and aggressions in the islands. Together these wars were chosen because they represent the complexities of all of the participants of war, combatant and non-combatant, in a colonial and post-colonial context. Through the exploration of terrestrial and underwater cultural heritage, film, history, memoirs, children’s historical fiction, poetry, painting and graphic novels, a focus on multi-vocality will be critical to understanding the meanings of war from different perspectives.
