Call for Papers

Date: May 17, 2022

Venue: Online (via zoom) & Dalton Room, Core Technology Facility, 46 Grafton St, Manchester M13 9WU, UK

Abstract Submission Deadline: May 1, 2022

We would like to cordially invite you to present at the upcoming international conference “Pacifism and Nonviolence in Contemporary Islam” at the University of Manchester.

The format of the conference will be hybrid – with talks presented simultaneously at the University and online via Zoom.

This conference brings together academics, civil society members, and activists from around the world. It explores Muslim experiences of pacifism and nonviolence while exploring prospects for their theorization. It moves past popular tropes of Islam as (or other than) ‘a religion of peace’ to offer a space to constructively and critically examine neglected literature, differing perspectives, and substantive initiatives – from scriptural interpretation to practical peacebuilding. Its approach is inclusive, inter-disciplinary, and flexible.

It seeks first and foremost to ground its discussions in their own contexts: theoretical and embodied, historical and political, theological and hermeneutic.
