Journal accepts Schreck paper
Published: Feb 01 2016
Jane Schreck, professor of English at Bismarck State College, had her analysis of Wendell Berry’s short story, “Pray without Ceasing,” published by In Factis Pax: Journal of Peace Education and Social Justice.
The scholarly article, titled “Inculcating Peaceability: ‘Let us make what peace is left for us to make’,” examines the connection between education and violence in the story. Her analysis articulates Berry’s skepticism about institutionalized education in the plot with support from his other writings.
“Berry wants us to confront a full accounting of the good of education, that here, as everywhere, the gains need to be balanced with the losses, advances with damages,” Schreck wrote in her paper.
Schreck holds a doctorate in teaching and learning in higher education from the University of North Dakota. She has a master’s degree in English and bachelor degrees in English, mathematics and education, also from UND.
