The Providence Clemente Veterans Initiative is a free humanities course for RI veterans, regardless of age, gender, or discharge status. Through history, philosophy, art, literature & creative writing, students look at war and homecoming from the ancient Greeks to the present. As in-person classes (pictured above at the RISD Museum) for the PCVI were converted to virtual gatherings, art history professor Suzanne Scanlan got creative to ensure students would still have the chance to examine the city’s memorials and “explore questions of war and duty through art, literature, philosophy, and history.” We congratulate all of this year’s PCVI students who celebrated their graduation, virtually, on May 28th.
