Syracuse Symposium is a semester–long exploration of the public humanities at Syracuse University through a diverse array of lectures, performances, exhibits, symposia, and other special events. The 2010 Symposium is organized around the theme of “CONFLICT: PEACE AND WAR.”
Whether understood as an ever–present scourge that marks the human condition, or as a tragic necessity of human progress, “CONFLICT” has always been a catalyst for humanistic inquiry into one of the most persistent features of individuals and societies.
The 2010 Symposium explores the meaning of “CONFLICT” in its often–opposing senses of “PEACE” and “WAR” in order to engage the entire SU community in reflecting on the root of this opposition, even if only to risk again the dream of its absence.
