Do you wish you lived in a more peaceful and just world?
How might we imagine and work to create a more peaceful and just world?
How can literary works contribute to our understanding of peace and social justice?
Imagining Peace (PHIL 101 and ENGL102) is a learning community that integrates two courses, Introduction to Philosophy along with Critical Reading, Writing and Research to provide an interdisciplinary approach to studying global non-violent solutions to conflict through literature, philosophy, research, and practice.
This learning community explores various conceptions of non-violence—ones that will enhance our goal beyond merely seeking to obtain the absence of violence, but which can also serve as a powerful tool for imagining and constructing a more just and peaceful world. We invite our students to share in this work.
