Lakeland College (Sheboygan, WI) is proud to announce that it is hosting the 22nd annual student conference for the Wisconsin Institute for Peace and Conflict on Friday, April 18, 2008. The theme for this conference is "Resolving Conflicts over Human Needs and Rights." Students will be presenting papers related to these issues in a series of panels and round-table discussions scheduled throughout the day. The keynote speaker is a Latin-American scholar called Thomas Walker who will be talking about his work with monitoring elections in Nicaragua. The conference is open to the public and all interested individuals or parties are encouraged to attend.
In addition to the academic aspect of this conference, it is hoped that the occasion can also serve to promote a broader interest in the cause of peace and justice. A common area in the student Campus Center (Bossard Hall) has been reserved to provide local peace groups with a place to promote their activities and distribute information to students. Tables, chairs, and media equipment are available upon request. Peace-related documentaries will be aired in this area throughout the day, and a round-table discussion on the Iraqi war has been scheduled to take place during lunch time. A concert featuring local musicians Cedarwell, the Plutoniates and Alan Mock has been arranged for the evening in the Pub on campus.
If you or your organization would like to participate in this conference, or if you have any particular questions, then please contact Rick Dodgson at email@example.com.
