Middle East in Transition: Peace & Conflict (High School)

Oct 23, 2012 - 13:00 PM-14:30 PM (Eastern)

This session will explore how we think about the choice between violence and non-violence, both in terms of how we remember the history of these movements, and in the current context of transition in the Middle East. Students will explore their personal and moral response to violence, and how they view the difference between terrorism and self defense, or between inappropriate and appropriate violence. Students will explore the balance of violence and nonviolence involved in key historical transitions in order to better understand current resistance movements across the Middle East. This is a two-part video conference taking place on October 23 and October 30, 2012. The curriculum and content of this event is directed at high school students. The cost to participate in this video conference is $150 per classroom connection.
