Farewell lunch to be held for Seeds of Peace group

A delegation from the Seeds of Peace International Camp will attend a farewell luncheon and discussion hosted by Bates College at noon on Thursday in the Benjamin Mays Center.

Christina Brinkley, associate professor of sociology and women’s studies, accompanied by Elizabeth Eames, associate professor of anthropology and chair of women’s studies, will discuss A Woman’s Place in the United States. This discussion is a follow-up to one previously held at Bates on Aug. 5 when a number of Bates College faculty, administrators and local political and religious leaders presented and led discussions with counselors and chaperones for the Seeds of Peace Camp.

Seeds of Peace is an internationally recognized summer program based in Otisfield where Israeli and Arab children have gathered since 1993 to find common ground.

Camp leaders and students will be leaving within a few days for Washington, D.C., where they will be hosted at the White House.
