Brandeis International Fellowship Program

Dates

2003-2004

Overview

Students in this fellowship program, sponsored by the Ethics Center's Slifka Program in Intercommunal Coexistence, participated in a weeklong institute in fall 2003 in which they shared narratives about their lives and worked with each other and in public presentations and workshops. Core sessions focused on the meanings and ethical dilemmas associated with reconciliation and the unique potential of the arts to restore capacities necessary for reconciliation. By the end of the week, the fellows had established a collaborative framework for the inquiry and a research agenda for the coming year. In the succeeding months, each team developed portfolios and wrote chapters for an edited volume as they reflected upon their ongoing work of furthering processes of reconciliation through arts and culture. The fellows shared their at another weeklong institute in fall 2004 at Brandeis.
