Cynthia Cohen Presents to Sesame Workshops International

On December 7, 2004, Cynthia Cohen gave a presentation to researchers and producers of Sesame Workshops International on her research into creative approaches to coexistence and reconciliation. Jonathan Fox, the founder of Playback Theatre and co-director (with Cohen) of Brandeis's recent fellowship program "Recasting Reconciliation through Culture and the Arts" joined her in making the presentation. Among the issues that emerged in conversation were questions about the contributions of imagination to coexistence and reconciliation, and tensions associated with simultaneously respecting and challenging community norms.
