Conversations in Conflict Studies featuring Becca Farnum and Maggie Scull

Virtual event via Zoom

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.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
