for the Study of War and Social Consequences
The William Joiner Institute for the Study of War and Social Consequences promotes research, curriculum development, events, and educational, cultural, and humanitarian exchanges which address the consequences of war. By serving veterans, family members of veterans, war refugees and all victims of war, we aim to create a public space where the issues of war and their human, social, political, and environmental consequences can be openly discussed, debated, and analyzed.
- Last fall the Vietnam Writers Association (VWA) and the Vietnam Union for the Arts and Literature awarded national medals to UMass Boston's William Joiner Institute for the Study of War and Social Consequences for the institute's contributions to the arts and literature in Vietnam.
- Giselle Sterling, the Commissioner of the Mayor's Office of Veterans' Services for the city of Boston, was the receipient of this year's annual Joiner Institute Theodore Parker award for outstanding service to the Boston veterans community.
