Possible essay topics may include, but are not limited to:
Human Rights in Italian Theater
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the UN in 1948 contains thirty articles. In a society disrupted by continuous violations of those rights we should ask ourselves what theater can do and what it is doing. How can it raise awareness? This panel offers the occasion to explore the role of theater and the urgent need for denouncing and defending human rights in Italian society as well as internationally.
Please send 250-word abstracts in English or Italian to Anna Cafaro, firstname.lastname@example.org, by October 10, 2010 .

For over twelve years, CEA members concerned with promoting peace through teaching and learning have gathered to share the results of our research and reflection. This year, we are please to ponder how the "wheel of fortune" influences peace. Papers and panels may deal with the fortunes (and misfortunes) of war and peace, the price--and rewards--of peace, and related topics. We invite anyone interested to explore with us the belief that "there is no way to peace; peace is the way."
