Professor Bradford to teach History 1101 - The Experience of War - sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities

“The Experience of War” History 1101
Prof. Steve Bradford  

History 1101 introduces students (veterans) to the history and literature of war through videos, lectures, and discussion of the Civil War and Vietnam. It encourages veterans to use the humanities and their own experiences to think about, and express their thoughts on war as experienced by others in the past and by themselves.   This course is supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) entitled The Experience of War and designed specifically for veterans. The NEH program “… supports the study and discussion of important humanities sources about war, in the belief that these sources can help U.S. military veterans and others to think more deeply about the issues raised by war and military service. … The discussions are intended to promote serious exploration of important questions about the nature of duty, heroism, suffering, loyalty, and patriotism.”   History 1101, "The Experience of War," meets Wednesday evenings, 6-8 p.m., 22 August-14 October. This is a discussion-based class limited to fifteen students/section. It requires the permission of the instructors, which is given to all past, current, and future (ROTC) service members.   Any student who is interested may get in touch with Prof. Bradford by email, at abradford@ou.edu Please include your student ID number. He will answer any questions you might have.
