Three Rethinking Peace Studies seminars will be held in 2014 and 2015. The seminars will each convene 15 people with diverse academic and geographic backgrounds for four days of dialogue. The seminars will each revolve around a theme. The themes are post-disciplinary, and are intended to allow seminar participants to approach Peace Studies from a diversity of perspectives. The first seminar will focus on the theme translation, the second memory & forgetting, and the third dialogue.
