CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Comparative Approaches to Religion and Violence Unit and Religion, Holocaust, and Genocide Unit

Call for Papers: 

Religion and the Convention on Genocide

As we commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, we welcome papers that critically reflect on the legacy of the Convention and its relationship to religion as well as future directions for study. Topics may include, but are not limited to, the political uses of the Convention by religious groups, debates about the efficacy of the Convention to protect religious groups, the current status of religion as a "stable identity" amid other Convention protected groups, the contributions of religious studies to the reconceptualization of "genocide," and comparative approaches to the involvement and reaction of religious actors who have been indicted or convicted under the Convention.
