Veterans, Disability, and the Power of Literature Webinar Series - Part 3: Conversation with the Poets

Wednesday, September 26, 2018
2:00 P.M. to 3:30 P.M. EST

Cost: Free

Format: Webinar

Where: Online/Web-based

Sponsored By:

Southeast ADA Center and the Burton Blatt Institute at Syracuse University


In a unique three-part webinar experience - Veterans, Disability, and the Power of Literature - join author and Vietnam War veteran Doug Anderson and author Steve Kuusisto as they discuss veterans, disabilities and the critical role creative writing has played in the difficult re-adjustment to civilian life.

The three webinars in this series are:

  • Part 1: History of Literature: Veterans and Disability
    Archive will be available.
  • Part 2: How Veterans with Disabilities Use Literature to Build Community
    September 12 from 2:00 - 3:30 pm [Eastern]
  • Part 3: Conversation with the Poets: Veterans and Disability
    September 26 from 2:00 - 3:30 pm [Eastern]

The themes in this series include the transformation of beliefs of war from the ancient glorification of battle in works like the Iliad to the raw realism of Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried and Doug Anderson’s memoir Keep Your Head Down: The Sixties, and a Journey of Self-Discovery.

NOTE: There are descriptions of war discussed in this series that some listeners may find unsettling. Listener discretion is advised.
