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.
