Exploring Moral Injury With Wisconsin’s Veterans

As part of the NEH’s Dialogues on the Experience of War initiative, Milwaukee-area veterans are using humanities materials and multi-sensory techniques to explore the moral injuries of war. Katinka Hooyer and her collaborators developed The Warrior’s Path: Moral Injury, War, and Reclaiming the Soul from many years of research exploring the shortcomings of post-traumatic stress disorder as the dominant narrative of the personal cost of war. The program seeks to create a communal space where veterans can explore moral injury themselves, then prepare to discuss the moral impact of war with the public and thus foster a civic dialogue to expand understanding of war’s costs.
