We invite papers from those working across disciplines to contribute to a two-day symposium on the broad subject of Violence and Millenarian Movements.
Violence has been envisaged and perpetrated by, and upon, millenarian movements for as long as they have existed. This symposium explores the motivations, causes, consequences and effects of violence for contemporary and historical millenarian movements.
We welcome papers in any disciplinary field including, but not limited to, the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences that contribute to understanding and promote discussion and debate on this topic. This symposium aims to promote debate and discussion on a wide variety of movements from a range of disciplines. Approaches could include interdisciplinary scholarship, cross-cultural and inter-religious engagement in literature and theology, sexuality and gender, history, exegesis, anthropology, social sciences, cultural studies, political theory or theology and so on.
Abstracts of no more than 300 words should be emailed to Project Director, Simon Robinson at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than December 31, 2016. In the body of your email, please include your name, institution if applicable, contact information, and the title of your abstract.
Accepted abstracts will appear in the conference programme. It is the lead author’s responsibility to ensure their abstract is accurate and ready for publication at the time of submission.
Papers should be no longer than 20 minutes in length in order to accommodate questions.
Presentations and subsequent discussions will be livestreamed via the internet and will be digitally archived and made available for future reference.
We encourage the use of accessible language and approaches to communicate concepts and ideas.
Applications for accommodation and travel cost reimbursements may be considered.
