The topic of technology and how it is used continues to be prevalent to this age range. Grebel feels particularly well-equipped to engage with this topic. We are thrilled to be able to host out third technology themed youth event.
"Where Moth and Rust Destroy: Archives and the Contest over Anabaptist Information"
Archives set the parameters of what we can know about early Anabaptists. Examination of archives’ own histories shows that, far from neutral repositories of historical evidence, these collections intensified conflict between early Anabaptists and their opponents. The management of information about nonconformists contributed to their repression, while Anabaptists’ documentary response supported their efforts to survive.
Join the Peace and Conflict Studies program at Grebel for a one-day event exploring both principled and pragmatic approaches to nonviolent activism for social change. Learn both historical and contemporary examples of how nonviolence was used to bring about change with Professor Marlene Epp and Professor Eric Lepp, and build practical nonviolence skills with The Ripple Effect Education to take action in school, community, and the world.
The event details in summary:
Drawing on local community partners involved in drone technologies and their applications, the "Cultural Life of Drones" explores how conversations about visual culture, technology, privacy, commercialization, safety, peace building and ultimately, the question of our shared humanity, can be brought into public dialogue via art.
