JUPS-271 Introduction to Engaging and Transforming Conflict
Fall for 2005-2006
Professor Jo Golden
This class will involve learning about yourself, learning about others, learning different ways to think about conflicts, and exploring your options when it comes to conflict participation. The course is divided into three sections. In the first section, you'll be asked to look at yourself in relation to others and in relation to social conflict. In the second section, you'll have the opportunity to explore different frameworks for analysis developed by others in the field of conflict studies, applying what you have learned to the analysis specific conflict/s or types of conflict--as you choose. In the third section, you'll have the opportunity to develop your personal capacities for engaging and transforming conflict. Throughout the class we will explore the tensions between conflict, justice, and peace -- what that means to us personally and what it means in our lives and the lives of others.
Our work in this class will always involve and depend on the interests of the group. The precise readings and exercises we do will be shaped by your participation. This is a general outline; the particulars of the course will emerge through our work together.
