When students, faculty, and staff were invited by the Office of Religious Life to submit photos for an exhibit titled “What Is Peace?” more than 160 images were offered on a wide range of subjects. “Our hope was to invite the Princeton community into a conversation about peace through the medium of photography,” said Paul Raushenbush, associate dean of religious life. Submitted images “included the beauty and ambiguity of the idea of peace in both the personal and social arenas,” he said. The exhibit will be on display in Murray-Dodge Hall for the rest of the year.
