Call for Proposals for November Meeting

For a panel that would be co-sponsored by the Religion and Human Rights Unit, the Religion and Politics Unit, and the Quaker Studies Unit, we especially invite papers that consider:

  • the religious logics of nonviolent protest in the U.S. and beyond
  • relationships between nonviolence and colonialism/dispossession: explorations of the ways in which nonviolent resistance might place actors at an advantage or a disadvantage in relation to regimes that have already dispossessed them of resources and/or rights
  • the question of what counts as “violence,” and who decides when this label is used.
