Experiencing War Memorials: Place, Feeling, and Public Memory
Editor: Dr. Jennifer K. Ladino
On August 30, 2021, the United States withdrew its military forces from Afghanistan, marking the end of the longest war in American history. During the twenty years of the Global War on Terror, between two and three million American service members engaged in post 9-11 war operations. American support for veterans and their families during this period was remarkably high. Beginning in 2010, Admiral Michael Mullen, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, referred to American public and private support for veterans as a “Sea of Goodwill.”
Veterans Studies is a growing field of research that addresses the significant impact of military personnel transitioning from active duty to civilian life with an emphasis on the veteran experience.

This session invites papers that explore the many facets of military life exhibited in literature, theater, film, and poetry written about or by military veterans as well as scholarly explorations of the veteran experience.
Some topics of particular interest include but are not limited to:

As a Black veteran and scholar, I endeavor to share the story about Black veterans navigating racism and racial injustice in the military through the lens of American patriotism. Patriotism in America is not one dimensional but is experienced in many varied ways based upon the social and cultural positionality of the individual experiencing this phenomenon. Patriotism for many Americans is most explicitly manifested in the decision to join the military. The decision to enlist in the military is shaped by several individual and external factors that include personal beliefs, personal experiences, as well as social, cultural, and political positionality. I believe veteran narratives are important for understanding patriotism in America and this is espec

Telling Life Stories: Ethos, Positionality, and Structures of Narrative
The reading and analysing of life stories offer multiple perspectives in understanding the self-reflexivity of authorial consciousness, the rhetorical/stylistic fashioning of ethos, and the fabulation/fictionality of narrative. Lived experiences, of the author as well as the reader, allow perception of meaning against the sedimented social, political, and cultural paradigms of the “master” or “grand narrative,” as Jean-François Lyotard puts in his seminal work, The Postmodern Condition (1979). The dialectic of human action and social reality within such narratives serves to map the interrelated progression of individuals and cultures throughout history.
