C. Henry Smith Peace Lecture: The Already Peaceable Kingdom: A Bestiary of Peaceable Living
Or, as the speaker, Dr. Trevor Bechtel of Bluffton University, puts it in his alternative subtitle: "Kirsten Bell's sloth fascination as a story of peace-building." Working from specific stories of animals across domestic and wild spaces, Dr. Bechtel argues that peace is found wherever we discover right relationships. His work aims at understanding the ecology of our relationships and seeking the full flourishing of all life. Surprising answers to questions of domestication, vegetarianism, hunting and pet owning will be considered.
