Event description
Annual conference of the Peace & Justice Studies Association and the Wisconsin Institute for Peace & Conflict Studies held at UW-Milwaukee.

About this event

The theme of this year’s PJSA/WIPCS conference offers the opportunity to explore the intersections of health, equity, justice, and peacebuilding.

Please see the conference website for the schedule, and information on speakers, hotels, pre-conference events, and travel information.

The roots of health disparities stretch back in history with colonization practices and are laid bare again by COVID19. The rawness of our recent crisis provides an important opportunity to explore the depth of health hierarchies. Importantly, it also energizes our recognition of the urgent need for change. Through papers, plenaries, and performances, we will explore the critical barriers and opportunities to address public health crisis points such as racism, economic disparity, social determinants of health, and gendered violence among other examples of systemic inequalities. Central to our discussions will be the thirst for innovative change and the centering of excluded and silenced voices.

Calling upon the depth and breadth of the interdisciplinary peace scholarship and conflict resolution practices reflected in the PJSA and WIPCS membership, this conference aims to further dialogue, mobilize strategy, and catalyze new insights and practices that empower global change through interconnected local actions.

The conference is a collaboration between the Peace & Justice Studies Association, PJSA (U.S. and Canada) and the Wisconsin Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies, WIPCS (Wisconsin), a regional organization that brings peace/conflict educators and scholars together to discuss pedagogy, research, and practice.

The conference will take place on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, October 8-10, 2021, with some virtual access. The conference is supported by the three hosts, as well as by several UWM departments and programs, and local organizations.
