"Peace Matters" at CEA

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."

Submissions: August 15-November 1, 2010.
