Peace Studies & Sociology
Amaryst Parks (peace studies and sociology) holds a B.A. in social justice from Centre College. Her areas of interest include education, social movements, and race and ethnicity.
Her primary research interests lie in education as a mechanism of peace and how educational alternatives combat and address systems of oppression (primarily white supremacy, colonialism, and capitalism) in popular education systems.
Amaryst’s passions concern paths to liberation (especially for young people) and intergenerational, learning- and learner-centered education spaces. She is asking how communities are moving toward pedagogies and cultures of peace and liberation.
Amaryst is a Notre Dame Dean’s Fellow.
