2014-16 NEH Enduring Questions: What is Peace? ($32,256) 

 

What is Peace?  On the surface, most undergraduate students probably feel confident

answering this question.  They may respond that peace is simply an absence of conflict or

war, or a state of feeling content and tranquil.  With a brief moment of reflection, they

begin to realize that these are superficial responses that generate even more questions.

How do we define peace? Why is there so much violence? Why are there wars? Are all

acts of violence wrong? What does your vision of peace look like? The new

NEH Grant for the proposed course What is Peace? will address these questions and

Introduce undergraduate students to the complex notion of peace through its historical 

origins, evolution of meaning, and relation to second-ordered concepts.  The course will 

critically guide students through a carefully selected core reading list that presents them 

with a pluralistic view of theories and practices of peace, diverse approaches to peace, 

and numerous perspectives and prospects for achieving peace.
