CALL FOR APPLICATIONS:
The Critical Humanities Research Group at the Centre of Excellence in Teacher Education, TISS Mumbai is happy to call for applications for its Summer Workshop to be held between May 17-19, 2023.
The Summer Workshop will focus on Peace Studies, Education and Pedagogy - Multidisciplinary Perspectives in Peacebuilding.
About the Workshop:
The need to engage with peace studies comes in the wake of widespread and new forms of conflict in society within a knowledge economy. Education policies increasingly recognise the need to equip learners with social and emotional skills, resilience, effective interpersonal and intercultural communicative competence, and empathy to live in a cosmopolitan world. Teachers and educators must be equipped equally to develop learners’ capacities, and achieve their fullest potentials. It is critical for educators and educationists, therefore, to engage with ideas of peace studies, education and peacebuilding strategies.
This 3-day residential Summer Workshop at TISS, Mumbai, will provide an immersive experience for participants into the discourse and praxis of peace studies and peacebuilding in education. Through a philosophy-in-action format, the workshop features intensive reading, discussions and sharing of experiences on themes related to understanding conflict and peace, identifying their different manifestations in culture and society, approaches to peacebuilding and strategies to mitigate conflict and build resilience. Education and different aspects of critical pedagogy will be explored as concrete steps in peacebuilding.
Through hands-on activities, inquiry-based learning and discussions, this summer school aims to build a community of peace practitioners who can work towards long-term peace through integration of theory and praxis in their work spaces.
