Northampton Community College is proud to announce the 2013-2014 humanities theme: Off to War and Coming Home: Historical Perspectives on Military Veterans During and After Their Service, 1946-Present. Programs and activities will be supported by a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and generous donors and partners. Dr. Michael McGovern, professor of history, will be the faculty coordinator.

Off to War and Coming Home will be a multidisciplinary exploration of important topics in American history. The history of American war veterans during their service and upon reentry to civilian life parallels major issues in the nation and helped to define and shape the present.

These veterans witnessed main currents of celebration, political ideologies, protest, and societal pathologies that sometimes accompanied their years of service and beyond. Their experiences of the GI Bill of Rights, the Baby Boom era, the protest of the Vietnam era, and the wars against "terror" are part of Northampton Community College's history as the College continues to serve large numbers of veterans.
