Call for papers: "Buddhist Worldviews and Concepts of Peace."
Blue Pine Books invites submissions of papers on the topic "Buddhist Worldviews and Concepts of Peace" for possible inclusion in an upcoming publication of collected articles. As an addition to our continuing series of publications on Buddhism and peace, the resulting book will investigate the topic from the theoretical and practical perspectives of the vast array of Buddhist traditions. Submissions may address such issues as the individual and peace, society and conflict resolution, scriptural bases for or against engaged Buddhist practices, the vinaya and peacemaking, historical or contemporary examples of Buddhist activism for peace and justice. From these or similar points of reference, submissions should address and contribute to the development of the theory and practices of socially engaged Buddhism.
Email submissions should be sent directly to the editors, Professor Chanju Mun at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr. Ronald S. Green at email@example.com. Blue Pine Books is a non-profit organization established to distribute Buddhist teachings and to promote peace in the world. We are committed to publishing quality academic materials in the field of Buddhist Studies.
