Title: Is There Any Hope for Pacifism?
Authors: Callaghan, Caitlin
Keywords: in-class activities
Issue Date: 2006
Description: A winner of the John S. Knight Assignment Sequence Prize, this sequence originates from Medieval Studies 101, Aspects of Medieval Culture: Turning the Other Cheekļæ½Pacifism in Medieval Europe. The series of three essays (the fourth, fifth, and sixth in the semester) springs from the question on which students have written since the beginning of the course: "What comes to mind when you hear the word 'pacifism'?" The three assignments are designed to help students analyze and critique their understanding of pacifism. Preparatory writing includes frequent Blackboard postings on the readings, small at-home reading and writing exercises, and the in-class study and writing of a medieval genre, the summa, in the form of a modern mini- summa. 16 page pdf
