OF SPECIAL INTEREST
Recently released, Sports: Peacebuilding and Ethics, edited by the Siegel Institute's executive director Linda Johnston, shows that sports can be an effective mechanism for peacebuilding, especially when incorporated into conflict-resolution programs. Among the questions explored in the volume are: various aspects of culture and how they can help shape sports programs; the role of a coach in creating a culture of peace, and how this culture can fit into a peacebuilding process. Contributors also examine the role of sports in trauma relief programs in Rwanda; the role of universities in sports; and the role of sports in the demilitarization of child soldiers as well as tackle some of the legitimate concerns raised about using sports for peacebuilding.
Congratulations Linda and contributors on this outstanding book!

Emmie Leigh Trull, American Studies Graduate Student, Kennesaw State University, shares her thoughts on the Siegel Institute's "The Ethics of Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse" class
"The Ethics of Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse" class has been incredibly informative to include into my graduate coursework. I have learned many life skills already just from participating in this class for the first half of the semester. Not only are we learning about zombie popular culture, but we are learning how to deal with crisis situations and leadership roles. Much like in a zombie apocalypse, leadership is needed in a crisis situation. The Zombie effect just makes it more interesting! If you enjoy zombies, or even if you are like me and don't care for them, I would encourage you to enroll in this class!
Learn about future Zombie classes!
