You may remember that last August, the World Peace Foundation introduced itself on the blog via three posts by Prof. Bridget Conley-Zilkic, and one of those posts described WPF’s annual student seminar competition. Well, the competition took place last fall, and the resulting conference will take place this week.
“Unlearning Violence: Evidence and Policies for Early Childhood Development and Peace” will feature “the best ongoing research in fields related to early childhood development and violence and peace.” It has been organized with the support of the Eliot-Pearson Department of Child Development at Tufts University (interesting collaboration!) and the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University. I realize I haven’t given you much advance notice, but you can still register to attend. Once you read through the agenda, I’m sure you’ll be tempted.
As I mentioned, the conference grew out of the student seminar competition, and two proposals on the same topic were selected. The two teams of competition winners (with an impressive showing from first-year students!) worked together to create the seminar. The students are: Madeeha Ansari (second-year MALD), Jack Berger (first-year MALD), Maria Rita Borba (first-year MALD), Taryn Campbell (second-year MALD), Suh Yonn Kang (second-year MALD), Daniel Orth (second-year MALD), Tina Robiolle-Moul (PhD candidate), and Roberta Sotomaior (first-year MALD). Congratulations to all of the conference organizers! It should be a terrific and informative event.
