This monthly public series, convened by Dean David N. Hempton of HDS, brings together a cross-disciplinary RPP Working Group of faculty, experts, graduate students, and alumni from across Harvard University and the local area to explore topics and cases in religions and the practice of peace. A diverse array of scholars, leaders, and religious peacebuilders are invited to present and engage with the RPP Working Group and general audience. A light dinner is served and a brief reception follows the program.
Below are videos of the RPP Colloquium Series from 2017-18, which was themed "Envisioning Sustainable Peace: Leadership, Collaboration, and Creativity for a More Humane and Harmonious World."
The RPP Colloquium was organized in 2017-18 with generous support from The Reverend Karen Vickers Budney, MDiv '91 and Mr. Albert J. Budney, Jr., MBA '74, as well as the Once Here Foundation.
