Introduction to Peace Studies and Nonviolence HTE550

Instructor: TBD

This course introduces students to the growing discipline of peace studies through the lens of peacebuilding, an integrated framework of academic study and practice. It guides students through key texts from peace research as well as cultural studies, religious studies, interventions from peacebuilding practice, and theologies that shape transformative approaches to peacebuilding. Students will have the opportunity to do substantial research in the areas covered by the course or to devise multidimensional and interdisciplinary peacebuilding approaches through case study.
