Should Conflicts be our Classrooms? Ethical Field Studies in Peace and Justice Scholars of international relations, environmental justice, and ethnic studies find fieldwork in (post-)conflict contexts a productive way to build knowledge. But what are the ethical implications of this practice - especially for students seeking experiential learning opportunities? Is equitable engagement with communities living in conflict possible for short-term visitors? Is studying dark tourism in situ a valuable learning experience...or simply another form of dark tourism?  During this conversation, Dr Becca Farnum and Dr Maggie Scull will reflect on their research-led teaching (and teaching-led research!) in contexts as far-ranging as the Troubles in Northern Ireland, Land conflict in the Arctic, ongoing tensions in post-genocide Rwanda, and racial violence in the United States.
