Fallout: In the Aftermath of War

As the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan draw to a close, the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center will consider, from the perspective of the humanities, the impact of war upon individuals, cultures, institutions and societies. Throughout the 2012-13 academic year, scholars, public intellectuals, journalists and social workers will explore topics such as the psychological and social challenges confronting veterans and their communities, the diverse narratives and commentaries that circulate about war, the place of war in the social imaginary, and the manifold forms of human aggression. Art installations, film screenings, creative performances and literary readings will give voice to the experiences of those whose lives have been affected by war.
