OBJECTIVE: I am not looking for a full time position right now, but I am available for lectures. In my retirement, I have been working on my blog and podcast, and doing research to get an understanding of the nature and history of conflict. I am very interested in the education of youngsters in developing countries. I am particularly interested in the problems faced by children of war. It would be difficult to establish schools for these children in the conflict zones in which they live, so I am wondering if there may be a way to remove the young people and teach them in a location safely removed from the conflict.
