The Historical Society of Pennsylvania and Warrior Writers are partnering on a series of discussion programs titled The Art of Reintegration: Veterans and the Silences of War, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The programs will engage veterans, their families, and humanities enthusiasts in conversations about heroism, reintegration, suffering, and anti-war activism. The conversations will take shape in the context of three conflicts: WWI, the Vietnam War, and the Global War on Terror. The context will be provided by a selection of HSP’s archival sources, published sources, and visual art.
The project aims to build a healthier veteran community where veterans and their families can speak openly and situate their unique perspectives and experiences in a historical context.
Now recruiting discussion leaders and participants!
Contact us if you:
- Are a veteran/service member or have a veteran in your family
- Want to speak openly and share your unique perspectives and experiences
- Want to help build a healthier veteran community
Veterans/service members and family members are strongly encouraged to apply. Discussion leaders will receive payment for their time ($200 per full training day, and $200 per event thereafter). Participants will be given a small stipend towards transportation costs.
The discussions will take place at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, 1300 Locust Street, Philadelphia.
This project is co-sponsored by Warrior Writers.
