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.
This is a timely reminder that the deadline for student paper submissions to the Beacon Conference is next Friday, Mar. 14 by 11:59 p.m.
The email after the jump includes the necessary information.
The conference is a wonderful opportunity for your students’ research papers to be acknowledged and recognized by established faculty from other community colleges in the Mid Atlantic region.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
