- Creating Cultures of Peace
|Coordinator(s)||Marty Branagan (email@example.com)|
This unit examines the creation, through the arts, of societies which enjoy sustainable peace. It begins with a critique of the pervasive nature of militarism and violence embedded deep in the cultural fabric of many societies, influencing the films we watch, clothes we wear, games we play, and toys we buy our children. It critiques discrepancies in history education with regard to war and peace, and examines artistic and cultural processes, institutions and artefacts designed to create peace, such as peace museums, peace journalism, peace education, peace gardens, and resistance to violence through cultural means. We examine the efficacy of these attempts. Particular art-forms focussed on include film-making, fine arts, theatre and music.
