The Role of Historical Reasoning in Religious Conflicts
Religion has often been described either as primary cause for violence and war or conversely as facilitator of peace. These are well-established narratives that inform our debate about the benefits and shortcomings of ‘acting in belief’. But what role does history, and more specifically historical reasoning, play in conflict situations? Is history contributing or even amplifying religious conflicts or, on the contrary, acting towards peaceful solutions?
The international conference draws attention to these questions inviting contributions from various fields of study and expertise. Interested researchers and peace activists who like to submit a proposal should consult the CfP for further information.
