Philosophical Approaches to Nonviolence Education

In commemoration of a forthcoming keynote address by peace educator Colman McCarthy in early 2019, The Acorn seeks submission of articles on philosophical approaches to nonviolence education. What resources can philosophy bring to bear upon analysis of complicit entanglements between education and violence. What philosophical sources and methods can be deployed to disentangle education from violence and to liberate educational concepts and practices toward literacies of nonviolence, pacifism, or resistance.
