Monroe Library to Host 14th Annual Student Peace Conference

By Loyola University on Fri, 03/25/2022 - 17:03

(New Orleans, La. , March 25, 2021) - The Loyola University New Orleans Student Peace Initiative will host the annual Student Peace Conference from March 28 to April 1. This year’s theme is “Navigating a Fragmented World: Concurring and Dissenting Opinions.”

Lieutenant General Russel L. Honoré is this year’s keynote speaker and will discuss the path forward from the threat to democracy following the attack on the nation’s Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. The conference will also include eight student panels and three film screenings. Dr. Bahman Maghsoudlou, a prominent film scholar, author, critic, director and guest of Middle East Peace Studies program and the Women’s Resource Center, will be at the screenings of both of his films, “Razor’s Edge: The Legacy of Iranian Actresses”  and “Iran Darroudi: The Painter of Ethereal Moments.”

“Our student panels tackle topics including climate change, inclusion and exclusion, and nationalism while bringing to the forefront some of the most difficult-to-talk-about issues that plague our ever-divided globe,” said Loyola student and conference chair Joseph Pitre. 

The Student Peace Conference is supported by the College of Arts and Sciences, the Department of History, the Women’s Resource Center, the Middle East Peace Studies program and the Patrick G. O’ Keefe Distinguished Professorship in History.
