The Veterans Learning Community curriculum is a sequence of two general-education courses (GEC): a reading course that looks at representations of the experience of war in art, literature, and film from diverse cultures and time periods, followed by a second-level writing course that asks students to document their learning community’s knowledge and experiences.
This symposium highlights the Veterans Learning Community final projects:
Daniel Dixon, "The 'Absolute Professional': A Study of Green Beret Self-Representations"
Matthew Ausderan, "The War About a War: Analysis of PBS Frontline's Feature Documentary Bush's War"
Ambrose Schulte, "'Tough Transition': A Structural Analysis of Veterans' Separation Stories"
Erica Slone, "Visualizing the Experiences of War: A Study of Storytelling Through Art"
Chad McMahon, "The Patriotic Mother Archetype: A Gold Star Mother's Memoir"
Kyle Huston, "The 'Holocaust': The Emotional Metaphors Marines Use to Describe their Experiences"
Joshua Green: "'Tired of Feeling Lucky': Recollecting Combat Duty"
The Veterans Learning Community is a joint initiative of the Division of Arts and Humanities, College of the Arts and Sciences, Mershon Center for International Security Studies, Center for Folklore Studies, and Department of Comparative Studies with additional support from the Institute of Collaborative Research and Public Humanities.
