Generous Dissent: Nonviolent Activism and Resistance
June 17 @ 8:30 am - June 21 @ 5:00 pm$580
Join us for “Generous Dissent: Nonviolent Activism and Resistance” at the 2019 Canadian School of Peacebuilding with instructor Emily Welty. Courses are available for professional development, personal inspiration or academic credit. Nonviolence is a commonly used term but what does it actually mean? This class is an opportunity to explore both pragmatic and principled theories of nonviolence and to debate their relevance for us today, using case studies from India, Servia, the U.S. civil rights movement, Indigenous movements, and others. In the context of the classroom, we will engage in lively discussion, experiment with role plays, watch short documentaries, and welcome guest speakers who will bring the concepts of nonviolence to life for us.
