As a follow-on to the 2020 CMM Institute Virtual Learning Exchange, participants are pleased to present a special topic webinar on the ways that CMM concepts and heuristics can help to better understand the conflict among competing and conflicting moral frameworks, and potential impact on social justice, mental health, and the enactment of democracy in our social systems and institutions.
The format organizers envision is to provide several short introductory presentations covering various forms of moral conflict. These may include: moral foundations theory; moral conflict and conflict resolution; metaphors of war and combat in new media (and alternative metaphors to these, such as jazz improvisation); and impact of “moral injuries” of military and veterans caused by failures to prevent harm and episodes of perceived betrayal. This will be followed by a guided open discussion of ways that CMM theory and heuristics may be applied to identify, analyze, and possible re-imagine these and similar conflicts of meaning.
Email your RSVP to Barton Buechner, and you will receive information about how to register via Zoom.
