Daniel Rothbart is professor of conflict analysis and resolution at the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, George Mason University. Professor Rothbart specializes in identity-based conflicts, ethics and conflict, civilians in war, and the Darfur region of Sudan. In addition to serving as director of the program on ethics and conflict at his home institution, he currently chairs the Sudan Task Group, an organization that seeks to build long-term peace in this East African country. His academic writings have led to more than forty articles and book chapters in scholarly journals and volumes. His recent publications in conflict analysis and resolution include the following books: Identity, Morality, and Threat: Studies in Violent Conflict (co-edited), Why They Die: Civilian Devastation in Violent Conflict (co-authored), Civilians and Modern War: Armed Conflict and the Ideology of Violence, (co-edited), and Violent Conflict and Peacebuilding: The Continuing Crisis in Darfur, (co-authored). He is currently exploring the power of moral emotions—shame, humiliation, dignity, pride—as central to protracted conflicts or to their resolution. After earning his Ph. D. in philosophy of science from Washington University, St. Louis, Dr. Rothbart was a visiting research scholar at Linacre College, Oxford, at Dartmouth College, and at University of Cambridge.
