A panel and preview of the PBS documentary series: The Vietnam War

Tuesday, October 10, 2017 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s epic documentary The Vietnam War, just released on PBS, took ten years to produce.
Join the School of Writing, Literature, and Film for an exclusive screening of a thirty-minute trailer and overview of the eighteen-hour series. The screening will be followed by a panel and Q&A featuring Charlie Haughey, whose 3000 photographs captured the experience of the soldiers in his division and the lives of the citizens they encountered. Alongside Haughey, Robert Santelli (Executive Director of the GRAMMY Museum and Director of Popular Music, OSU) will discuss the representation of the war in music of the sixties. Jon Lewis (Distinguished Professor of Film Studies, OSU) will discuss the war as it has been portrayed on the screen. And Larry Rodgers (Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Professor of English, OSU) will detail how the Vietnam War became a literary subject.

Moderated by Marisa Chappell, Associate Professor of History.
