The Art of Reintegration: Veterans and the Silences of War

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. 
 
The discussions will take place at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, 1300 Locust Street, Philadelphia.
 

This project is co-sponsored by Warrior Writers.

 

This project has been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.
