To work for peace and justice from a place of hope, compassion, and persistence requires courage — not only to face conflict, suffering, and violence, but also to claim one’s own share of the trouble and thereby disrupt the cycle of disowned projection that creates the Other. Such courageous presence invites spaciousness, creativity, and inclusivity.
In this spirit, the 2014 PJSA conference has invited presentations that tell new stories, shift perspectives on old ones, include participants who are not commonly at the table, and develop transformation and emerging possibilities.
Our conference will be held on the beautiful campus of the University of San Diego on a mesa overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Taking advantage of its location just 20 minutes from the busiest international border crossing in the world (San Diego/Tijuana), we have expressly welcomed presentations from Mexican and Latin American colleagues, as well as on border and indigenous issues. We also plan to host presentations from the area of disability studies as well as the broad range of fields comprising peace, conflict, and justice studies.
