Unrest Magazine – Issue Three – January 2011
By: Unrest Editorial Cell January 15, 2011
Greetings and welcome Unrest readers worldwide.
Welcome to the third issue of Unrest Magazine. Issue Three contains a great selection of pieces by guest contributors and Unrest authors. Erin McKee starts us off with a timely discussion on the implications of the Holder v. Humanitarian Law Project decision for individuals and groups who provide humanitarian aid and conflict resolution training to groups designated as terrorist. This is an issue of pressing importance not only within the field of peace and conflict studies, but to all those invested in promoting human rights. World-renowned poet Irakli Kakabadze graces our pages with two provoking pieces in our Right Hemisphere section. Alex Scheinman takes to task Robert Kaplan’s vision for the American Empire in Discourse. Lane Salter presents a narrative-based critique of Richardís Disarming Manhood in this issueís Banter. Additional pieces by: Derek Sweetman on the implications of heterogeneous conflict for developing a Critical Conflict Theory; Sarah Rose-Jensen on the topic of reform or revolution for the field; Jay Filipi offers a highly original piece on the use of Lacan’s discourses as a tool of conflict resolution; and Michael D. English submits the report on Graduate Education and Professional Practice in International Peace and Conflict to a critical reading. In short, we are happy to bring you another exciting issue of Unrest!
