The development and piloting of four second-year interdisciplinary humanities seminars for low-income nontraditional students, through a partnership between Antioch University and the Clemente Course in the Humanities.

Inflection Points offers texts that guide students on a path from self-awareness to engagement via facilitated discussions in history, art history, literature & moral philosophy. Antioch & Clemente will extend an existing partnership to pilot 4, 3-credit, 2nd-year humanities courses for Clemente graduates, all of whom are low-income adults. According to research, Clemente students are more civically engaged than their counterparts in the general population and 2nd-year students are more likely to earn degrees. Courses are free—including books, childcare & transportation—& guided by experienced college faculty. In response to COVID-19 we will transition 2nd-year courses to online delivery, increasing capacity to reach more students, & allowing faculty to collaborate across disciplines & locations. Drawing from 25 years’ experience, & emphasizing close reading, critical thinking, & writing, we give students the skills they need to succeed in college and enhance their civic engagement.

Four six-part dialogues to be conducted at four different sites in four locations—Seattle, Phoenix, Antioch University, and Bard College—focused on the theme of coming home from war.
 

Clemente will host four, six-part dialogues in communities currently served by project partners. At least two of the series will be offered simultaneously to Clemente Courses specifically targeted to veterans, one in Phoenix for women only, and one in Seattle for the general population. The other two will be offered as independent series, or integrated into other Clemente programs. In all cases, our target audience will be veterans struggling to transition to civilian life, their families, and community support networks: case workers, judges and advocates from Veteran’s Courts. In preparation for the dialogues, faculty and visiting scholars in the humanities – moral philosophy, history of art, literature – as well as experts on serving veterans who are experiencing post-deployment challenges, will meet for 3 days in spring 2016 to engage in close readings and discussions of selected texts, design classroom strategies to engage non-traditional students.

Four 12-week Dialogues on the Experience of War seminars for between 15-20 military veterans and interested civilians per seminar, preceded by a preparatory program for ten seminar discussion leaders.

The Providence Clemente Veterans’ Initiative offers two 12-week Dialogues on the Experience of War, weaving together History, Moral Philosophy, Literature, Art History/Film and Public speaking. Aimed at veterans struggling with readjustment to civilian life, it is open to all regardless of discharge status. We developed this proposal based on two decades of experience with the Clemente Course, which offers free humanities courses to low-income adults, and after successful completion of a pilot program offering Clemente to veterans. Interdisciplinary exploration of the humanities, in community with others, enables veterans to make sense of their often profound and soul-shaking experiences. We will discuss the Peloponnesian War, the Civil War, Vietnam, and post-9/11 conflicts, as well as the internal conflicts that soldiers often experience in service and coming home. Vets will be taught to lead discussions themselves, bringing them into community and dialogue.

A preparatory program for ten discussion leaders, followed by three parallel 12-week courses on the themes of the call to war, going to war, and reconciliation, for a total of 45-60 veteran participants.

Clemente Veterans Initiative (CVI) Dialogues on the Experience of War will offer a twelve-week series of Dialogues at three venues: Tacoma, WA, Houston,TX, and & Newark, NJ. Our target audience is veterans who are struggling to return to civilian life, including those with less than honorable discharges. Many have been disabled serving their country. We developed CVI based on 20 years of experience with the Clemente Course, which offers free, college-level humanities courses to low-income adults, and upon four years of offering Clemente Courses specifically to veterans. We have seen the value to these veterans of deep reflection through engagement with humanities texts over a period of months, and of establishing an intellectual peer group that creates lasting bonds . The content will emphasize great works of literature, history, philosophy and visual art that came out of, or were inspired by, the Trojan and Peloponnesian Wars, the American Civil War, and the Vietnam War.

A two-year project to hold four 12-week Dialogues on the Experience of War seminars for 10 military veterans and interested civilians per seminar, preceded by a preparatory program for six seminar discussion leaders

The Providence Clemente Veterans Initiative (PCVI) has been funded in part by an NEH Dialogues grant since 2019. Through our trauma-informed approach, we (a) facilitate peer discussion of the personal and universal experiences of war and homecoming throughout time, as embodied by texts and materials in history, philosophy, literature, art history, film, and creative disciplines; (b) support the return to civilian life by historicizing and contextualizing the experience of homecoming within ethical and existential frameworks across cultures; and (c) foster veteran well being and a purpose filled life through developing opportunities for civic engagement, creative expression, and community connection. In the wake of its successful program and in partnership with the Clemente Course in the Humanities, the PCVI seeks to deepen, refine, and extend its existing mission.

Expansion of a humanities program for high school students and the addition of Slippery Rock University students as Humanities Fellows to serve as teaching assistants and mentors for high school students.

The Humanities Ladder is a high school "ladder" three year program that intends to: 1)introduce college-level material in the humanities to high school students; 2) provide low stakes, high engagement opportunities for students to practice reflective critical thinking in disciplines like aesthetics, philosophy, anthropology, history, and more; 3) demystify college for first-generation students who might otherwise not consider attending a university; and, 4) provide Slippery Rock University students insight of and empathy with community members beyond the university and outside their prior experience, through ongoing engagement. The Center for Public Humanities adapted the well-known Clemente Course (2015 National Humanities Medal honoree) into the Humanities Ladder for high school students in the economically and geographically isolated communities of southwestern Pennsylvania.
