CONAPP 2020 Conference (June 2020), Call for Proposals due 12/15/19

Gettysburg is famous for the United States’ Civil War. Instead of letting violence have the last word, we will gather at this site to discuss peace and justice, and dare to imagine radical alternatives!

The Consortium of North American Peace Programs (CONAPP) invites proposals for the first undergraduate student-centered, peace and justice conference at Gettysburg College (Pennsylvania, USA), June 8 – 11, 2020. Masters and doctoral students, professors, and community members may attend, learn and dialogue, but presenters will only be undergraduates from Canada, Mexico, and the United States.

We invite proposals related to any of the following themes: peace, justice (food justice, restorative justice, prison abolition), sustainable development, human rights, conflict resolution/transformation, peace education, philosophy of peace and non-violence, climate change, and unsettling settler colonialism. You may also submit proposals that reflect peace-related themes not explicitly mentioned here.
