Instructor: Emily Welty

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, India, Serbia, the US civil rights movement, indigenous movements and others.

Engage in lively discussion, experiment with role plays, watch short documentaries and welcome guest speaker who will bring the concepts of nonviolence to life for us.
