In Face of Conflict: Multi-Religious Cooperation for Peace, A Call for Submissions
Call for Papers Deadline:
In Face of Conflict: Multi-Religious Cooperation for Peace
Religion is often thought of as a cause of conflict. Zealous practitioners of one tradition fight the zealous practitioners of another in the name of God – in defiance of the emphasis each theological system places on peace. In its fourth issue, the Journal of Inter-Religious Dialogue™ (http://www.irdialogue.org) seeks to examine where and why religious conflicts take place – and how conflicts carried out in the name of religion can be mitigated or transformed. The issue will be guest edited by Dr. William F. Vendley, Secretary General of Religions for Peace.
All submissions must be the original, previously unpublished work of the author(s). Authors are also advised to read about the Journal and the previous issue prior to submitting an article. Submissions should be approximately 3,500 words, including references and a 100-word abstract. They should adhere to the Fifteenth Edition of the Chicago Manual of Style, with in-text citations. Co-authored articles are welcomed and encouraged. Articles may be submitted online at http://www.irdialogue.org/submissions or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for submissions for the third issue of the Journal is January 30, 2010. Articles submitted after this date will not be considered for publication in the third issue. You will hear back about the status of your submission by February 28, 2010.
After an initial vetting process by the editorial board, each submission will undergo a rigorous peer-review by members of the Board of Scholars and Practitioners. If accepted for publication, the Journal's staff may edit the submission for mechanics and adherence to writing standards.
Guest Editor Dr. William F. Vendley serves as Secretary General of Religions for Peace, overseeing the International Secretariat in Asia, Africa, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. Dr. Vendley has served as a professor and Dean of the Roman Catholic Major Seminary in Long Island, New York. He has been awarded numerous prizes for religion and human rights, and serves on the boards of a number of organizations. He holds a doctorate in systematic theology from Fordham University and a master’s degree in religious studies from the Maryknoll School of Theology.
