Conference: Nonviolence and the Liberal Arts Curriculum


Conference: "Nonviolence and the Liberal Arts Curriculum: A Peacemaking Conference for Scholars and Educators will be held at Bluffton College on May 26-28, 2004. The conference is devoted to the renewal of education and scholarship in the tradition of the historic peace churches and in conversation with all who are committed to nonviolence. Specifically, the conference is designed to encourage the transformation of the liberal arts and their professional counterparts according to the discipline and vocation of nonviolence. Conference participants will be expected to contribute to a conversation that extends, complicates and challenges the methodological proposals found in the book Teaching Peace: Nonviolence and the Liberal Arts (Rowman and Littlefield, 2003), which suggests particular applications of a nonviolent worldview to issues and problems of the academic disciplines. The goal of the conference is to start a movement that reshapes the beginning assumptions and orienting questions of every discipline in the academy through a prior commitment to peace as a way of knowing. The vision of the conference planners is for educational institutions and departments and classrooms where students discover the call to peacemaking at the center of their study and scholarship and hence at the center of their vocational identities. That vision for peaceable education and vocation has been for the historic peace churches rooted in the life, teachings, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ--the Prince of Peace---and is offered as a gift for all, including those of other faiths or of no faith, toward the building together of a peaceable world.
