What Did You Fight For, What Did You Bring Home: Moral Injury in the Lives of Military Veterans will feature artistic and literary work by veterans and community members. The exhibition is part of a two-day conference at Syracuse University April 17-18 that will bring local, regional and national scholars, clinical practitioners, writers and artists to address the psychological, spiritual and artistic dimensions of moral injury among veterans. Moral injury is the damage done to one’s conscience or moral compass when one perpetrates, witnesses or fails to prevent acts that transgress one’s own moral and ethical values/codes of conduct/understanding.

 

The exhibition was juried by Andrew Hansen Miller, U.S. Army OEF veteran and coordinator of the Moral Injury Project; James Haywood Rolling, dual professor of art education and teaching and leadership in the College of Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) and the School of Education; Jordan Robinson, Marine Corps veteran; and Sam Van Aken, associate professor of sculpture in VPA.
