Trip to Scotland and Ireland

CHAPMAN UNIVERSITY
TRIP TO SCOTLAND AND IRELAND
Justice and Peace: Birmingham to Belfast
May 25-June 12, 2011

This course will examine the techniques of nonviolent direction action used by the US Civil Rights Movement and compare and contrast those with similar struggles to end apartheid in South Africa and bring peace in Northern Ireland.  There will be additional reflection on whether such means could help bring peace in Israel/Palestine.  Travel will be first to Iona, Scotland, center of the reconciling Iona Community and will then proceed to the University of Ulster in Northern Ireland. We will also spend time in Glasgow, Belfast, and Dublin as well as the Donegal region of Ireland. We will meet with John Bell of the Wild Goose Resource Group, whose music and liturgy is foundational for the Iona Community. We will have time with leaders of peace movements in Northern Ireland—Paul Arthur and South Africa—Wilhelm Verwoerd.

Who May Attend
The trip is open to all Chapman students, alumni and donors as well as persons who may hear of this opportunity through the same. In addition to Dr. Don Will, Rev. Nancy Brink and Cisa Payuyo of the Office of Church Relations at Chapman University will be sharing leadership. Beyond them, space is limited to 18.
