Professor Dobkins’ lecture “Compassion for the Perpetrator” is about how society’s heal after massive human rights violations, and how we (as individuals) heal after minor (or major) violations. Taking a historical approach, Professor Dobkins will discuss one of the best examples of societal healing – the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which was formed after the end of Apartheid in South Africa. Taking a humanistic approach, Professor Dobkins will discuss everyday violations, where we can all relate to being both “perpetrator” and “victim”, and how a deep understanding of our own dark side is a necessary step in making sure it doesn’t run the show.
