The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship

The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship grew out of faculty and student interests that emerged in the late 1990s. Since then, the Center has developed and expanded into a flourishing nexus of social responsibility, civic engagement, and global peace work, both on campus and in the greater community.

The CPGC’s first Seeking Global Citizenship Symposium brought a host of visitors to campus to pose questions about ethical partnership, activism, and inquiry. Photo: Soha Saghir '21

Unwilling: Exercises In Melancholy

Closes April 27, 2018
Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery

Resisting the historical definition of melancholy as an affliction that creates disorder or inactivity, this exhibition reimagines passive sadness as powerful refusal, a conscious (or unconscious) “standing aside,” a willful production of generative failures and resistant potencies. Details »
