As a guest lecturer/teacher in Peace- and Conflict Studies, assigned by the Department of Political Science, Umeå University, I am about start teaching at the course Violence and Nonviolence. The course discuss different forms of violence and nonviolence, arguments on violence and nonviolence as political strategies, and research on effectivness and consequences. The course also discuss relations between pacifism as ideology and nonviolence as a practial activity, how violence and nonviolence relates to gender, as well as relations between violence, nonviolence and modernity.
Due to the Corona pandemic, the course will be all on-line, starting December 3rd and ending January 15th. I am looking forward meeting the students at this course.
