CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Ecclesiological Investigations Unit and Quaker Studies Unit

Call for Proposals for November Meeting

In light of this year's presidential theme of "Violence, Nonviolence, and the Margin," we invite papers for a joint session that consider how particular church communities (especially, but my no means exclusively, the historical "peace churches" of Friends, Mennonites, and Brethren) concretely enact their philosophies of nonviolence and principles of peacemaking in situations of violent conflict. In particular, we hope to consider how the varieties of Christian commitments to peace come to render lived or practical ecclesiologies that equip individuals and communities for civil resistance, intercommunal solidarity, or indeed martyrdom.
