Redrafting Perpetual Peace: Between Academics, Arts and Activism
Redrafting Perpetual Peace - Article One
“Redrafting Perpetual Peace: Between Academics, Arts and Activism” is a series of six short films by the Centre for the Humanities Artist in Residence Janina Pigaht that aim to explore one main question: How can we translate Kant’s academic discourse to induce discussions on peace between the academic & the artist?
The Films are based on an initiative of the Perpetual Peace Project in association with the Syracuse University Humanities Center. By using the six preliminary articles Kant outline’s in his essay as a framework In interviews with Karen Armstrong, Catherine Hall, Kevin Bales & Jolle Demmers, the films explore questions such as: What is an idea of Peace? What can be considered peaceful initiatives? and what does it mean to be a peaceful academic?
