Panel for AFS: War

Dear Colleagues:

For AFS in Santa Fe, I'm trying to put together a panel on the folklore of war. The general focus would be something like "military worldviews," and I'll do a paper myself on how PTSD threatens the "Suck it up" orthodoxy. If anyone is working on something that might resonate with this interest, I'd be happy to read an abstract. I'd like it by March 10. Thanks,

Tad Tuleja
