Ideas Matter - Literature, Medicine And The Experience Of War

  We are very happy to continue our regular feature – Ideas Matter: Checking in with the Public Humanities. It is our chance to check in with the Humanities Councils throughout our 7-State area to discuss important ideas and why they do indeed matter.

Today we check in with MASS Humanities and learn about “Literature, Medicine and the Experience of War” - a six-month, scholar-led, humanities reading and discussion program for health professionals and staff in medical facilities administered by the US Department of Veterans Affairs and/or veterans and military service organizations.

Here to tell us more are Robert Meagher, Professor of Humanities at Hampshire College and author of a new book entitled, Killing From the Inside Out: Moral Injury and Just War; and Rose Sackey-Milligan - a Program Officer and coordinator of the Literature and Medicine and Reading Frederick Douglass Programs at Mass Humanities.

Joe talks to people on the radio for a living. In addition to countless impressive human "gets" - he has talked to a lot of Muppets. Joe grew up in Philadelphia, has been on the area airwaves for more than 25 years and currently lives in Washington County, NY with his wife, Kelly, and their dog, Brady. And yes, he reads every single book.
