Resources for Peace
When: April 10-11, 2014
Resources for Peace is a combined faculty and student conference to be held April 10-11, 2014, at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. We call for proposals that provide an analysis of conflicts caused by shrinking resources. The conference will explore human resources and cultural dynamics which could contribute to an understanding of war or other forms of conflict.
Proposals for presentations will be accepted through January 15, 2014, to PAX@uww.edu. Please include whether you are a student or faculty member, your name, school, title of the presentation, and a 150-word abstract.
This call for papers is a series of questions
- Are there more effective or other approaches to the distribution of resources that are less prone to war?
- What needs to change for the world to shift to a sustainable and peaceful economy?
- What moral and cultural resources may be mobilized for such change?
- Does an increasingly contested globalization ultimately mean a shrinking humanism as imagined in dystopian novels and films?
