War and Peace Series

The Saga Continues – War and Peace Series Resumes this Spring!

War and Peace series talks at ASU New College
Visit the website for a schedule of events: www.newcollege.asu.edu/warandpeace

Dr. Patrick Bixby an Associate Professor in the School of Humanities, Arts and Cultural Studies will be presenting in a brown bag session:

“Ireland and the First World War.”

The presentation will be held Wednesday, Feb. 6 at noon in the University Center Building Room 241.

This year’s ASU New College academic theme, “War and Peace,” provides a variety of ways of looking at these and other complex questions across the disciplines. We offer a variety of college degree programs.  Viewed through the lens of the fine arts, literature, history, communication, and the natural sciences, the New College community will tackle these issues to help all of us develop our own more nuanced and thoughtful responses.  Anchored by keynote addresses with Ishmael Beah and Maxine Hong Kingston, co-sponsored by the Arizona Humanities Council, the program will feature plenty of opportunities for students and our community to dig deeply and engage in meaningful dialogue with one another.

There is no better place than an interdisciplinary college (view our video on “what is interdisciplinarity?”) that sees the relationship between all the pieces of the puzzle to take on such a multi-dimensional set of issues!  Join us for the conversation on ASU’s West Campus this year!

War and Peace Series Events – “Benevolent Conquest” and “9 Circles”

“Benevolent Conquest: Catholic Missions in the Spanish Empire”

War and Peace
Visit the website for a schedule of events: www.newcollege.asu.edu/warandpeace

Spain’s conquest of the Americas did not end with the defeat of the Aztec and Inca Empires. Thousands of people lived in the territory that stretched from what is now the United States to Chile and Argentina. In its efforts to incorporate these people and their lands into the Spanish Empire, the Spanish Crown used Catholic missions as one of its main tools.

  • This presentation describes the missions and sets the stage for a discussion about how the missions were a tool of both war and peace.

Presented by:  Julia Sarreal, Assistant Professor in the School of Humanities, Arts and Cultural Studies
