Dr. Scott Bennett – Mulcahy Institute Faculty Fellow

Dr. Bennett, our inaugural Mulcahy Institute Faculty Fellow, is co-editing a new book series for Brill, a major publisher headquartered in the Netherlands. The series, Studies in Peace History, promotes new scholarship on peace history and on the movements, groups, people, and actions that have opposed both war and its causes.

Our marketing team sat down with Dr. Bennett to learn more about Studies in Peace History and what we should expect to learn from the series. Click here to read the entire interview.

Dr. Bennett also launched the Mercy Peace Forum on Wednesday, November 9th.

“After being named the inaugural Mulcahy Institute Faculty Fellow, I thought about establishing a speaker series on nonviolent peace and justice,” Bennett said. “I discussed the idea with a colleague at Gwynedd Mercy University, and we then invited colleagues at the University of Saint Joseph and at the University of Detroit Mercy.”

“Besides teaching at Mercy universities,” Bennett noted, “we are all active in the Peace History Society which, along with our universities, is cosponsoring the Forum. We envision the Mercy Peace Forum as an opportunity to foster interaction among Mercy universities about nonviolent peace and justice.”
