Summer Program 2018

Please join us for our summer program summer program “Irregular Warfare: Experiences Across the Civil-Military Divide” from August 20th-August 23rd at Brown University.

This program brings veteran students who have recently been accepted into a Rhode Island colleges together for a four day humanities-based workshop. Students will work from a core reading list of books that includes works about the early 19th-century Peninsular War, the Anglo-Boer War of 1899-1902, Vietnam War, and current wars. Students will participate in small group discussions about the texts with discussion leaders. Our discussion leaders come from a wide variety of backgrounds- from academics to Veterans themselves.

The goal of this program is to equip students with the skills and knowledge to navigate the demands and expectations of humanities work while in college. In addition to the summer workshop, Irregular Warfare runs programming throughout the school year.

The workshop is funded by the National Endowment of the Humanities and free to participants. Reading materials will be supplied at no cost and there is additional funding to help with other costs such as transportation and childcare. Breakfast and lunch to be served daily.
