2012 Faith, Reason & World Affairs Symposium
Learning to Help and Hope
2012 FAITH, REASON AND WORLD AFFAIRS SYMPOSIUM
Tuesday, Sept. 11-Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2012
Concordia College, Moorhead, Minn.
"Beyond Genocide: Learning to Help and Hope" focuses on our connections in a global community. Genocide is not something that only happens in Africa. It is not something that only happened in the distant past. We are all involved today as voters, consumers, scholars, humanitarians and citizens of the world. Together we will find the hope that lies beyond genocide by learning about recovery efforts and post-genocidal activities. Together we will become aware in order to grapple with the difficult questions. People from all disciplines can contribute to a campuswide conversation that seeks to address, if not fully understand, issues related to genocide.
Whatever your background or discipline, you will learn to help and hope in ways that apply to your studies at Concordia and your life in general. Experience all aspects of the Faith, Reason and World Affairs Symposium and you will find some history of genocide combined with concrete information about how to get involved in recovery and prevention efforts. You will find the faces and voices directly affected by genocide, with time and space for you to reflect on your thoughts and feelings in terms of faith (the role of spirituality and religion), reason (academics, critical thinking, problem solving) and world affairs (how all of us are affected by genocide).
