Abstract

This book explores the interdisciplinary arena of peace studies and shows how the field has evolved and continues to grow and change. Dedicated to bringing students face to face with the grave injustices and violence in the contemporary world, it equips them with the tools to work for transformational change. Informed by an intersectional perspective, scholar-activist authors probe contested terrain, including teaching social justice from a place of privilege, decolonializing pedagogies, and community organizing. Games and simulations, storytelling, experiential integrated learning, and other pedagogical approaches are employed to encourage critical thinking, empathy, optimism, and activism.
