Call for Papers: Muslim Perspectives on Peacebuilding
Paper Proposals Due: July 1, 2012
Conference Date: Oct. 12-13, 2012
Claremont Lincoln University, USC’s Office of Religious Life, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), and the Center for Global Peacebuilding at Claremont Lincoln are co-sponsoring a conference on Muslim Perspectives on Peacebuilding, from Oct. 12-13, 2012, in Claremont, Calif.
They’ve issued a call for papers from community leaders, activists, educators, researchers, and professionals to inspire fellow scholars and community members interested in peacebuilding from Muslim perspectives, by sharing their experiences in resolving family, community and interfaith conflicts. Themes should relate to Family, Community, and Interfaith conflicts, and, within these themes, conflicts based upon gender, age, culture, and race.
The aim is to deeply engage what it means to approach these issues from Muslim perspectives and develop methodologies and models of intervention and prevention to address the range of issues presented.
