The training of student veterans to lead statewide public discussions for veterans and civilians on the experiences and commemoration of war through material culture.

Bringing War Home enables participants to develop a deeper understanding of the material world of modern war and its incorporation into our families and our efforts to memorialize and commemorate these conflicts. We will do so in several ways. First, through community conversations, aimed at bridging the divide between combatant and civilian memories of war, of Tim O’Brien’s classic story of the Vietnam War, The Things They Carried. Second, by co-teaching a web broadcast class on the material culture and history of 20th-century war that trains students especially those who are veterans to collect and document material culture narratives. Third, via public events featuring workshops on material culture preservation and oral history, where veterans and families are encouraged to bring objects from their own collections for documentation and inclusion in our digital archive. Finally, through community discussions based on the object stories collected in the digital archive.
