The Hesburgh Lecture, sponsored by the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, is free and open to the public.
Tarrow’s lecture, “Seeking Peace in Wartime; Opposing War in Peacetime,” will explore the effects of recent wars — the Ukrainian war, the violent outcome of the Arab Spring, the Islamic State takeover of parts of Iraq and Syria — on the U.S. peace movement.
Since Sept. 11, 2001, the United States has been fighting in conflicts during a time that legally is a time of peace. For the U.S. peace movement, this has had contradictory effects. Tarrow’s lecture will explore these contradictions and propose a path for those who seek to advance the cause of peace today.
