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 twocenturiesofpeacemaking@gmail.com by December 11, 2015.
