The humanities allow us to share the human story. The consequences of war have become increasingly prevalent since 2001 as two million American men and women have been deployed in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Yet, as members of an all-volunteer service corps, in which less than 1 percent of the U.S. population serves, veterans do not always find their military experiences readily understood by the public at large.
Standing Together draws on the power of the humanities to promote discussion and understanding of the experiences of those Americans affiliated with the armed services, whether active duty or veterans; and to support returning veterans and their families.
Ohio Humanities welcomes proposals that involve the state’s veterans. Projects should be informed by scholarship, insights from the humanities, and the participation of humanities professionals. Ohio Humanities requests applications that:
“Standing Together: The Humanities and the Experience of War” is a nationwide initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities. As the state-based partner of NEH, Ohio Humanities is pleased to offer this opportunity to Ohio.
