Poetics and Ethics of World/Sense: Cultivating the Lessons
- 267 Downloads
Walsh urgently advocates that cultivation of peace depends on lived experiences with border crossing cultures and power hierarchies, whether between communities or between academic disciplines, and learning to live in the visceral liminal borderlands created—cultivating both a poetics and ethics of world/sense. Taking such experiences seriously carries implications for the visions of peace witnessed in each case study as well as implications for a range of professional academic disciplines, including clinical, pastoral, health and human service care; secular and religious educators; social and religious institutions; and theological and religious scholarship. Taking lessons from interdisciplinary encounters seriously also creates a larger context for intersectional signs of hope in a shared world troubled by violent trauma and looming climate change.
