Resident Seminars on Religion & Violence

2018 - 2019 Academic Year


The relationship between religion and violence is complex and contested, raising a range of interdisciplinary questions for the seminar. How are both terms defined, related, and deployed across disciplines? What resources do different religions offer for ending violent conflict? How is the violence in religious texts, histories, media, or practices to be interpreted? How can we identify and engage with religious factors in conflict situations? Can religions counteract gender-based and domestic violence? What role do local religious communities or the arts and religion play in resolving violent conflict? How is trust built and reconciliation achieved in interreligious conflicts? Are assumptions about religion and violence changing in the theory and practice of diplomacy, human rights, pacifism, or warfare? Applicants will welcome the opportunity to think together on such questions as members of our seminar in Princeton.
