[POSTPONED]Teaching Conflict Resolution from Antiquity to the - 20-21-22-23/04/2021, Manaus (Brazil)
The theme of this workshop, which follows on from two previous events in Bogotá (April 2020) and London (July 2020), is ‘The Pedagogy of Conflict Resolution’. Hence, participants might choose to present accounts of existing projects integrating the Classics and conflict resolution outreach or develop plans for future programmes combining these subjects. Participants may also wish to explore how educators can mitigate the emotional impact of potentially sensitive classroom discussions on violence and war or even approach the workshop’s theme from an ancient history perspective by exploring how the ancients addressed subjects such as warfare and peacekeeping when educating youths. We also encourage speakers to examine how conflict resolution structures found in both ancient and modern literature might be practically implemented within Brazil and Colombia. Possible case studies include a region-specific reworking of Shay’s (1994) report, which compares post-traumatic stress disorder in Vietnam War veterans to Achilles’ emotional state in the Iliad.
