Susan Opotow Concludes Editorship of Peace and Conflict: Journal of Peace Psychology, 2010-2013

Dr. Susan Opotow, a member of the doctoral faculty in psychology at the Graduate Center and the sociology department at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, City University of New York recently concluded an editorship of Peace and Conflict: Journal of Peace Psychology, 2010-2013 (peer reviewed, published by the American Psychological Association). In the last issue, Opotow focuses on “Museums as Sites for Historical Understanding, Peace and Social Justice.” Working with guest editor David Dean, a Carleton University history professor and Co-Director of the Carleton Centre for Public History, Opotow and Dean explore Canadian history in which key psychological concepts, memory, trauma and identity, are examined through the lens of public history to yield a more nuanced understanding of peace and conflict.

Opotow initially connected with Dean in 2011 when she was the Distinguished Faculty of Arts and Social Science Visitor at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada (Psychology, Interdisciplinary Studies, and in the Carleton Centre for Public History). Her introduction to the special issue on Canadian museums speaks to peace and conflict in interdisciplinary ways.
