Summary

Eighteen individuals representing eight social science disciplinary approaches, seven observers representing various educational positions, and eight staff members participated in an inquiry to discover how academic scholarship can be used to determine the understandings required in teaching about war and peace. Three substantive concepts -- conflict, violence, and authority were discussed in an effort to determine what should be learned by students about each; the problem of interdisciplinary research on these and other topics was given theoretical consideration; and suggestions as to future work by individual and sponsoring organizations were explored. The inquiry provided an occasion for individuals with different academic viewpoints to discuss these inter-relationships and, offered an exchange between academics and educators. A brief critique of the inquiry program indicated it was overly ambitious, discussion was forced, the group too large, and that there was some misunderstanding as to whether the conference was to examine content rather than techniques of teaching about war/peace. Brief summaries of formal presentations exploring the three concerns above are attached to this report. Also included is an edited version of suggestions concerning what participants thought to be the most important about the war/peace field in education. (Author/SJM)
