Professor emeritus Ron Osgood will use the outcomes from discussions in a two-day symposium to inform the ongoing development of his Vietnam War / American Stories digital archive.

Vietnam War / American War Stories: A Symposium on Conflict and Civic Engagement” is July 23-24 in Hazelbaker Hall, Herman B Wells Library. Participants will identify compelling ways to present war’s social and cultural complexities and will strategize how best to engage both scholars and the general public with primary source materials that tell these stories from multiple perspectives.

Osgood’s project is both an interactive website and an Emmy award-winning broadcast documentary.
