SIS Class Visit: Transforming Cultures of Conflict

Thursday, February 27, 2020
8:20 PM - 10:50 PM Eastern Standard Time
Location: Main Campus
Description: This course falls in the domain of advanced applied culture, peace and conflict resolution. It provides an overview of the cultures of conflict, and how exclusive social identity narratives impact seemingly intractable conflict processes. Students examine the cases of Colombia and Nepal among others, and learn about different tools that have helped transform erstwhile cultures of conflict in these societies. They develop individual cultural transformation toolkits for application to the frozen Kurdish conflict in Turkey.
