This panel aims to promote recent scholarship on veterans' politics and policy in the U.S. from the colonial era to the present.

Concept Note: From processions to pamphlets, vigils and manifestoes, the articulation of dissent could take any form. This issue of Café Dissensus intends to inquire into art-based interventions and their capacity for political movement.
