Ancient Wars/Modern Vets

May 21, 2016

In this ninety-minute illustrated presentation, Peter Meineck offers short readings from contemporary translations of ancient texts to elucidate the connections between the experience of the American veteran community and the ancient Greeks and Romans. Participants will be asked to relate their own stories to the ancient material and together will explore themes such as coming home, democracy and war, women at war, the ethics of war and the relationships between veterans and civilians.

Funded project of the New York Humanities Council. The New York Humanities Council is a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
