Comparative Approaches to Religion and Violence Unit and SBL Violence and Representations of Violence

Call for Papers: 

Religious violence is often facilitated by the discursive constructions of "Others”. A classic mechanism for constructing Others is the charge of blasphemy, in which the Other is said to have spoken or acted in a way that is deemed sacrilegious. We invite papers that explore charges of blasphemy in religious discourse, particularly those that pay attention to the work that such charges perform in the context of (inter)religious violence, competition, or conflict.

Proposals are anonymous to chairs and steering committee members until after final acceptance/rejection
