Description   SPRING 2017
In Spring 2017, the Muilenburg-Koenig History of
Religion Seminar at SFTS turns to the history of
religion and violence and the practice of
peace-building. Led by Christopher Ocker (SFTS)
and Byron Bland (Stanford Center on International
Conflict and Negotiation and the King Institute
of Stanford University), the seminar will study:
theories of conflict and conflict resolution,
select aspects of Jewish-Christian-Muslim and
Catholic-Protestant conflict, conflict and
peace-building in Northern Ireland and
Israel-Palestine, and the church's contributions
to social and racial violence and their
resolution today. The seminar will include
discussions with activists and practitioners.
Plans are underway for students to contribute to
a (required) community workshop and participate
(as observers) in an additional conflict
resolution symposium with leaders working on
particular conflicts right now. Students will
also design and complete a research project
related to some aspect of the semester theme
relevant to their own present or future work. The
seminar may be used to fulfill the Capstone
requirement in the SFTS MDiv curriculum. [Faculty
