Reconciliation Summer Institute
In the latter planning stages for a summer institute on Reconciliation to be held at TRU in July of 2012. Still working out the general issues, but the idea will be to have a two-week intensive face-to-face with a cohort of students enrolled in three undergraduate courses (upper levels in Philosophy, Anthropology, Communication) either for credit or a non-credit certificate. This will be a dynamic pedagogical experiment with a series of guest faculty in live and virtual formats and an interactive base for students to engage with the issues of reconciliation in multiple contexts. We hope to enrol 20 students (for a total of 60 seats) and foster future developments in the field, regionally, nationally, and internationally.
