Join the ICERM Radio talk show, “Lets Talk About It,” for an enlightening discussion on “How to Deal with History and Collective Memory in Conflict Resolution” with Cheryl Lynn Duckworth, Ph.D., a professor of conflict resolution at Nova Southeastern University, Florida, USA.
This is going to be an illuminating expert interview and discussion.
The interview/discussion will focus on “How to deal with history and collective memory in conflict resolution.”
Approaching this topic from a peace education perspective, we will focus on the most important themes in Dr. Duckworth’s book, Teaching About Terror: 9/11 and Collective Memory in US Classrooms, and apply the lessons learned to the international context – especially to the Rwandan genocide and the Rwandan educational reconstruction, and the Nigerian politics of oblivion regarding the Nigerian Civil War (also known as the Nigeria-Biafra War).
Dr. Duckworth’s teaching and research focus on transforming the social, cultural, political and economic causes of war and violence. She regularly lectures and presents workshops on historical memory, peace education, conflict resolution, and qualitative research methods. Among her recent publications are Conflict Resolution and the Scholarship of Engagement, and Teaching About Terror: 9/11 and Collective Memory in US Classrooms, which analyzes the narrative today’s students are receiving about 9/11, and the implications of this for global peace and conflict. Dr. Duckworth is currently the Editor-in-Chief of Peace and Conflict Studies Journal.
