Conference on Multiculturalism, Pluralism, and Globalization

Note: I’ll be the keynote speaker at LaCrosse, Wisconsin this Friday, Oct. 5. The Conference is on Multiculturalism, Pluralism, and Globalization, sponsored by UW LaCrosse and The Wisconsin Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies.

My framing issues have to do with how to help maintain, educate, develop visions toward a peaceful world – perhaps especially in a current context which seems continually divisive. Is it inevitable that we move toward a totalitarian or theocratic control? I think not, exploring the past century or so – some divisions, but others that have been resolved or “gone away,” surprisingly.
