From the Local to the Global

Conflict, Consensus and Compromise in Cultural Change

This year’s conference, Making a Choice: Conflict, Consensus and Compromise in Cultural Change, seeks to utilize the idea of agency and choice as a lens through which to encourage a more interdisciplinary discussion that reaches into the local community and engages with a variety of sources and perspectives about the role of the individual, the community and the memories created in the processes of conflict and conflict resolution. The conference aims to highlight intersections of both historical and interdisciplinary value and to engage with multifaceted themes that are particularly relevant to numerous contemporary fields of historical inquiry, both inside and outside the academy. Our hope is to engage with historical topics that not only cross disciplinary boundaries, but that reach within and beyond the social and academic borders that influence our understandings how choices affect cultural change.

All events will take place in the Kelley School of Business.
