Description: 

Throughout human history, there has been armed conflict.  For as long as we have recorded that history, humankind has turned to literature as a way to make sense of the senselessness of war.  The Southeast ADA Center and the Burton Blatt Institute at Syracuse University invite you to a unique three-part webinar experience - Veterans, Disability, and the Power of Literature

Join authors Steve Kuusisto and Doug Anderson as they discuss veterans with disabilities and the critical role creative writing has played in the difficult re-adjustment to civilian life.

The three webinars in this series are:

  • Part 1: History of Literature: Veterans and Disability
    Archive available after August 29
  • Part 2: How Veterans with Disabilities Use Literature to Build Community
    Archive available after September 12
  • Part 3: Conversation with the Poets: Veterans and Disability
    September 26 from 2:00 - 3:30 pm [Eastern]

The themes in this series include the transformation of beliefs of war from the ancient glorification of battle in works like the Iliad to the raw realism of Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried and Doug Anderson’s memoir Keep Your Head Down: The Sixties, and a Journey of Self-Discovery.

NOTE: The themes discussed in this webinar series contain descriptions of war that some listeners may find unsettling.  Listener discretion is advised.
