Tuesday / Thursday: 1:45 PM – 3:14 PM
As a writing seminar, this course will focus on both the articulation and the writing o f reconciliation, with students undertaking white papers and then op-eds on related sub topics. Our course text will ground us in Africa, though students may wish to conduct cross cultural analysis in their self directed research. At its core, this course is about how humans find ways to talk across pain and, in so doing, create paths for healing.
Note: This is an SNF Paideia designated writing seminar, designed to examine and encourage dialogue across differences. Students and faculty participating in the Paideia writing seminar cluster will have an opportunity to meet once a month for dinner, dialogue, and a keynote speaker or facilitator, as well as engage in other cross seminar community building activities.
