War—on the battlefield, for oil, in our minds. Truthdig columnist Chris Hedges and editorial cartoonist Mr. Fish told a University of Connecticut audience Thursday about their dealings with our civilization’s war against itself in all its ugly forms.

The talk was part of a weeklong event called “War and its Meanings” sponsored by The Humanities Institute and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Hedges speaks for the first half hour. He and Dwayne Booth (Mr. Fish) conclude with a conversation with the audience.

In the second video, Booth talks about his development as a skeptic and an artist and the joy of collaborating with Hedges.

Both segments were shot and edited by independent New Jersey videographer Leigha Cohen.
