MAKING PEACE WITH THE WORLD: THE ROLE OF THE GÜLEN MOVEMENT IN THE TASK OF ECO-JUSTICE
Department of Religion at Temple University and Philadelphia Dialogue Forum are sponsoring a conference on the theoretical and pragmatic meanings of peace in humanity with world in the case of Gülen’s thought and the Gülen Movement. With Gulen's thought and the Gulen movement as foci for case studies, the conference aims to explore two dimensions of peace in humanity. First, making peace between differing human communities, and second, making peace between the human community and the living and limited world that embraces us and makes our life possible. The phrase “eco-justice” states this dual reality, as global economic justice must go hand in hand with global ecological justice if “peace” is to be made.
We invite abstracts and papers from fields including all the arts and sciences: environmental science, religion, philosophy, economics, politics, geography, law, history, anthropology, and others. Those interested in participating are invited to submit a brief abstract (approximately 250 words) and a short bio by September 1, 2010, electronically to:
Heon C. Kim, PhD
co-organizer and editorial board at
The editorial board will review the abstracts and respond to the submitters by September 15, 2010. The accepted abstracts and biography will be published on the conference webpage. The authors should submit papers of minimum 3000 and maximum 6000 words to the conference coordinator by November 01, 2010. The editorial board plan to select, and publish the papers in an edited volume as a part of publication projects of the Gülen conferences and of Philadelphia Dialogue Forum. The selected papers will be announced by November 31, and asked to be revised (if needed) by January 1, 2011 for publication.
The conference will be held at Temple University, Philadelphia, PA, USA. Travel and accommodation expenses of the invited presenters including airplane trip and meals will be met by the organizing committee. An honorarium of $500 will be paid for each paper presented at the conference.
