Dialogue Series: Restorative Justice for Racial Justice

-

Location: Geddes Hall

Restorative justice poses guiding questions for how best to respond to injustice. Join us for a series of conversations exploring those questions in response to racial injustice in our culture. Living the challenge of peace is hard work in the face of enduring racial injustice, and many are rightly seeking ways to stop it. But justice requires more than stopping injustice.

Revolutionizing the Age of Revolutions

Location: Rome

Revolutionizing the Age of Revolutions
Rome, December 17-19th 2017

This conference deals with one of the seminal periods in Western history; the Age of Revolutions. The term ‘Age of Revolutions’ is a familiar one, but what does it mean today?

We believe we are at an important moment for the history of the Age of Revolution since one of its most influential texts – R.R. Palmer’s The Age of the Democratic Revolution: The Challenge – will mark sixty years since its publication in 2019 and the historical framework he constructed is in a time of great ‘revolutionary’ change itself. With this conference, we want to gather the best scholars of the Age of Revolutions to take stock of the state of the field, discuss what are the appropriate frameworks through which to understand the Age of Revolutions, and to elaborate a new vision of the Age of Revolutions; one that takes into account new regions, currents, and methods that have emerged in recent years. …
