Professor Neal Keating participated in an Expert Meeting on peace sustainability at Columbia University on October 23, organized through the Advanced Consortium on Cooperation, Conflict, and Complexity, part of the Earth Institute at Columbia. The expert meeting was convened to discuss and examine the design of a new approach to modeling sustainable peace systems at local to global scales, that makes use of non-linear systems of causality that are grounded in temporalities of historical memory, future expectations, and the current existence of conflict resolution mechanisms and peace-promoting practices.

Dr. Zinni's book project, “A Palimpsest of Place: Technologies of Memory, Landscape, and Folklife in Western New York,” has been selected by the University of Illinois Press for the 2015 Folklore Studies in a Multicultural World workshop, a collaborative publishing initiative of the University of Illinois Press, the University Press of Mississippi, and the University of Wisconsin Press, in conjunction with the American Folklore Society and with funding from the Andrew W.
