History and Literature of Non-Violence

Instructor
Snyder

In this course, we'll examine the history and literature of non-violent resistance in both monotheistic and non-monotheistic religious traditions, seeking to understand points of commonality and difference. The theory of non-violence held by Martin Luther King, for example, owed a great debt to that of Mohandas Gandhi. We will pay significant attention to contemporary figures and issues.
