Graduate Student Conference on Religion, Violence, & Human Rights
Contemporary History Institute
Date: April 1, (Saturday) 2006
Deadline: March 13, 2006
Contact: Jeff Bloodworth at email@example.com
In conjunction with the Contemporary History Institute’s 2006 Baker Peace Conference, Ohio University’s History Graduate Student Association is sponsoring a graduate student conference organized around the themes of Religion, Violence, & Human Rights. While the conference is primarily intended for historians, political scientists, and philosophers, graduate students from any field in the humanities or social sciences are invited to submit their paper proposals.
In addition to the graduate student conference, presenters are cordially invited to attend the 2006 Baker Pace Conference on “Religion and Violence” (March 30 & 31) which immediately precedes the graduate student component. The conference will feature panels organized around the themes of: Religion as a Source of Violence; Religion and Peacekeeping; and The Debate on ‘Just War.’ In addition, there will also be a keynote address by Ambassador Dennis Ross.
Ambassador Dennis Ross is The Washington Institute's counselor and Ziegler distinguished fellow. For more than twelve years, Ambassador Ross played a leading role in shaping U.S. involvement in the Middle East peace process and dealing directly with the parties in negotiations. A highly skilled diplomat, Ambassador Ross was U.S. point man on the peace process in both the George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton administrations. He was instrumental in assisting Israelis and Palestinians to reach the 1995 Interim Agreement; he also successfully brokered the 1997 Hebron Accord, facilitated the 1994 Israel-Jordan peace treaty, and intensively worked to bring Israel and Syria together.
The deadline for paper proposals is Monday March 13th. If you have any questions or want to submit a proposal or panel contact Jeff Bloodworth at firstname.lastname@example.org. Some free housing is available for eligible graduate students.
