DEP Hosts an Iteration of the "Coming Home Dialogues"
The Department of English and Philosophy (DEP) hosted an iteration of the Coming Home Dialogues. This event was funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and gathered faculty members from across West Point to explore the moral, psychological, and spiritual impacts of war on the warrior as he or she returns home. External facilitators from the USNA and other institutions used sources in philosophy, history, poetry, and literature to spur discussions that allowed participants to better comprehend their and other's experiences with war and coming home. USMA is looking to incorporate the material and the spirit of this event in classrooms and other area at West Point.
