Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and IHEs to foster humanities-based discussion and study concerning the experience of war. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. This program is primarily designed to serve military veterans, military families, and men and women in active services; however, interested members of the public are also welcome to participate.
The program supports the study and discussion of important humanities sources about war, in the belief that these sources can help U.S. military veterans and others think more deeply about the issues raised by war and military service.
Awards will support:
- The convening of at least two sustained discussion programs for no fewer than fifteen participants
- The creation of a preparatory program to recruit and train discussion leaders
Preparatory training and discussion programs may take place in veterans’ centers, at public libraries or cultural centers, on college and university campuses, and at other community venues.
The discussion programs must:
- Treat at least two historically distinct conflicts in depth: one from the earliest wars through World War I, and a second from the wars after World War I
- Focus on the close study of sources drawn from at least two distinct genres (such as historical writings, memoirs, military biographies, speeches and letters, philosophical writings, documentaries, fiction, and artworks)
- Engage participants in deep discussion of the selected humanities sources and the issues that they raise
- Convene participants for multiple sessions to foster sustained and inclusive dialogue
Preparatory training programs: Applicants must assemble a team to develop a preparatory training program. The preparatory program should be designed to train discussion facilitators, referred to as discussion leaders. The program should include the following:
- Close study of the humanities sources at the heart of the discussions
- Modeling and practice in leading humanities discussions (for example, posing questions designed to explore texts and elicit discussion of the texts’ contemporary relevance; articulating rules of civil discourse; encouraging group inquiry; moderating disagreements)
- Developing the discussion leaders’ knowledge and awareness of the diverse backgrounds and perspectives of military veterans and service members
- Building a virtual or actual network of discussion leaders and resources for future versions of the program and/or new programs
