Course: Politics of Reconciliation, Memory, and Justice

Course: Politics of Reconciliation, Memory, and Justice

Monday/Wednesday 1:00-2:15pm
Spring Semester

Prof. Alejandro Baer (Sociology) and Prof. Catherine Guisan (Political Science)

What is political reconciliation? Are we witnessing efforts to bring final resolution to long-standing conflicts? Should we accept that reconciliation is at best a fragile, temporary equilibrium between opposite political forces that must be reenacted with each passing generation? Is reconciliation an action that rests on religious faith, or does religion threaten reconciliation? Is there a dark side to reconciliation that undermines justice and economic fairness?
