Just War?

Peter J. Haas, Laura Hengehold, William E. Deal, Kelly McCann

4/10/03

 

In the last few months, the language of “just war” has increasingly become a part of public discourse. Different groups have used just war doctrine both to oppose and support the war on Iraq. Political leaders, talk show hosts, editorialists and movie stars argue about whether this war is just. What does and doesn’t it mean to call any war just? How and when is such rhetoric politically effective? What value does it have in an international discussion? Is it only a narrowly western idea? Does just war doctrine still make sense in the contemporary world? Join us for a panel discussion on the history and meaning of “just war.”

Peter J. Haas, Department of Religion – Just War Doctrine Today: Can a Modern War Be Fought Justly?

Laura Hengehold, Department of Philosophy – When is War Philosophically Justifiable? Why — For Whom?

William E. Deal, Department of Religion – Asian Perspectives on the Morality of War

Find Support for Your Research: Funding Opportunities in the Humanities

Donna Heiland

4/23/03

 

There is more money out there than you might think! The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) has for decades funded individual research in the humanities and related social sciences, and since 1997 has significantly increased its available resources. This year’s fellowship programs together awarded just over $5 million in stipends to nearly 150 Fellows. Donna Heiland, Director of Fellowship Programs at ACLS, will talk about research funding for the humanities, with a focus on the range of programs available at ACLS, the thinking behind their development, and the application/review process.
