The Peace Studies Program held its first Peace Studies Student Conference March 4-6, 2010. The conference was envisioned as multifaceted and interdisciplinary, revolving around a full day of student paper presentations moderated by faculty discussants, with two keynote speakers, a photo exhibit and a music event.
The goal of the conference was to create a space for students and faculty of different disciplines and interests to come together and share ideas on the common themes of peace and conflict studies. The presentation panels were designed to give students an opportunity to present their ideas in a formal and professional setting, to receive constructive feedback from a faculty discussant, and to discuss those ideas with an audience of peers.
