Public Programs

Offering opportunities to engage with the experience of military service.

The humanities can play an important role in articulating the unique issues and concerns faced by Veterans: fostering connection, reducing feelings of isolation, and providing a safe context in which to explore issues regarding military service.

Our Veterans-related public programs provide an opportunity to open dialogue between the civilian public and Veterans about the experience of military service. These programs, which have been organized and designed alongside Veterans and Veterans organizations, aim to illuminate and explore service from multiple perspectives.
