Student Pugwash provided materials to the Think We Must installation at Central Michigan University as a member of their "thought community." Think We Must investigates the philosophical, ethical, legal and spiritual dimensions of organized violence and the ways in which inquiry and rational activity are used in its service, with a special focus on the testing of nuclear weapons, their use in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the International Law that has developed in response.
It's worth noting that we effectively have two blogs for updates about goings-on here and Pugwash discussions. This is where we publish for the general public, but we also have general interest and Pugwash-topical discussions running on our collaborative website for members. A subset of that will be published here, to give everyone an idea of what's going on over there.
Now that we have our blog set up here, we'll be putting news and updates on our own site—but there's some interesting older stuff posted on our Facebook page, if you want to go browsing. Most recently there's information about fellowship and internship opportunities, as well as some fun stuff like this:
If you've just signed up as a member, or you've been grandfathered in as a previous donor, you'll shortly receive a few emails from us. (One of the things we're working on: automating this better so they go out immediately. Bear with us.) You'll receive a membership login for this site, which will give you more options to explore what we're doing, and more importantly, add to what we're doing—for example, letting us know about Pugwash-style events in your area that other Pugwash members might want to attend.
Welcome to our newly launched website and membership programs. We're calling this our "pre-launch" period for both our programs and the tools we're using, during which time we'll work with our early members to iterate both to best suit everyone's needs. We have a lot of exciting plans here, and we're building some great technology to put them into action—but we'll be right about some things and wrong about others.
