Presented by:
New Hampshire Humanities
Current Initiative: Standing Together National Partner: NEH Subject: War/Veterans Audience: Veterans

The “Standing Together: The Humanities and the Experience of War & Homecoming” project utilizes the power of storytelling and dialogue to address both the experience of war in its many guises and the social and cultural barriers that challenge returning soldiers. The two-pronged program includes a documentary based on veterans’ stories and a veterans-only series of facilitated book discussions that indirectly address issues of war through the use of Homer’s classic narratives.
