We’re very excited to announce that the National Endowment for the Humanities has funded our proposal for a semester-long humanities class, for veterans and non-veterans, discussing great works of literature, history, philosophy and art centered around three major conflicts: Classical Greek wars, the American Civil War and the Vietnam War.
The class will be taught in a seminar style, with active discussion and participation expected.
Those who complete the course will be eligible for 3 college credits from Bard College, NY.
The cost for participants will be: nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch.
This class will be free, thanks to our NEH funding.
But although it is free for the students, that does not mean it is worth nothing. On the contrary, a lot of time and effort has gone into prototyping the class and learning from other classes to create a classroom experience that will be beneficial and educational to all participants.
