A CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOP AS A PROPER PLACE FOR PEACE EDUCATION: A NOVEL

J. Camargo

Tecnologico de Monterrey (MEXICO)
Literature has received a lot of attention as a form of moral education, since, as Martha Nussbaum would say, it is through narrative imagination that we understand the world and interiorize it. As María Teresa López de la Vieja points out Literature can be useful for teaching Ethics in diverse manners: to illustrate abstract concepts, comprehend distant realities or provide clues that escape other forms of discourse. However, we should dig deeper in how Creative Writing gives way to an ethical understanding and how it generates small communities surrounding the creative act. These topics are this’ research’s starting point: to introduce the educative experience of writing a collective short novel linked to peace studies in which 34 students of Tecnologico de Monterrey participated, under the guidance of a teacher and an invited professional writer. The novel was created by six teams, each team that received the plot advancement from the previous team, like a matryoshka. To advance the narrative structure at the same time recommendations were made about some concepts from the Peace and Conflict Encyclopedia, printed by the University of Granada.
