"WAGING PEACE: Studying the Challenges of a Postwar Peace"
When wars end, the communities, veterans, and governments that waged them begin the processes of peace. From the reconstruction of national identities to the resettlement of refugees, postwar periods are often as complex as the conflicts themselves. The year 2016 marks the anniversaries of the first year of peace following the end of the War of 1812, the United States Civil War, the Second World War, and the Vietnam War. We look forward to discussing recent scholarship on these important topics in September.
