Fall/Spring semester

One of the major problems in the world today is the conflict of identities – be they of religion, culture, race, or country. Such conflicts are often rooted in an exclusive sense of self, and therefore, a solution to resolve such conflicts may lie in the emergence of truly inclusive identities. Applying cutting-edge research on identity and subjective experience, this experiential lab explores and evolves identity-related processes that could transform prejudice, discrimination, and conflict.
