Call for Papers, Proposals, and Panels for “Two Centuries of Peacemaking” Conference in Newcastle upon Tyne this June!

In June 2016 Newcastle University and Northumbria University – both located in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK – will jointly host a conference entitled “Two Centuries of Peacemaking”. The event will mark the bicentenary of the foundation of the (London) Peace Society whilst also relating to two other anniversaries: the centenary of Britain’s enactment of conscription during the First World War, and the run-up to the semi-centenary of Martin Luther King’s visit to Newcastle (where he received an honorary doctorate).

Conference papers will address a wide range of issues in peace history, examining the role of peace activism, war resistance and non-violence in the past and in the present. The organizers warmly welcome proposals for papers and panels. Abstracts of 200 words and brief biographical notes should be submitted to by December 11, 2015.
