Cost: Free

Format: Webinar

Where: Online/Web-based

Sponsored By:

Burton Blatt Institute at Syracuse University


We encounter post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in numerous settings these days. It is most commonly associated with veterans, and some scholars have suggested that PTSD affected combatants from ancient conflicts through World War II and in todays conflicts. Larry Logue and Peter Blanck wrote a forthcoming book (2018, Cambridge University Press) that examines psychological illness and suicide among veterans of the Union army in the American Civil War. Theirs is the first study to use detailed pension records and death registers to estimate the incidence of mental illness and suicide in those who returned from Americas deadliest war. Dr. Logue will discuss the projects results and the relevance of PTSD to understanding the past. Dr. Blanck will speak to the implications of the historical findings and the struggles of 21st-century veterans.
