To support Marquette’s racial equity efforts and to expand curricular offerings in the Peace Studies (INPS) major / minor, the Center for Peacemaking is offering a $2,500 course development grant to highlight the role of womxn of color—especially Black womxn—in nonviolent liberation movements.
More information is available on the Center for Peacemaking’s website.
Proposals from all disciplines are welcome. Proposals should:
- Devote a significant portion of the course to studying the role of womxn of color—especially Black womxn—in nonviolent liberation movements
- Consider any or all of the following in historical or contemporary liberation movements:
- Analysis of organizing activities or thought
- Research by scholars who are womxn of color
- Primary sources (such as autobiographies or memoirs) and any other relevant sources
Note: if the proposal is to significantly revise an existing course, it must have its own course number. Single sections of multi-section courses are not eligible.
All proposals should include a letter from the appropriate department chair with a commitment to offer the course annually.
Contact Rev. T. Michael McNulty, S.J. and Dr. Louise Cainkar of your intention to submit a course proposal.
