Justice and Peace

2023 Call for Papers

Daniel Justin, Regis University (CO)

Brian Stiltner, Sacred Heart University (CT)


The Justice and Peace section welcomes proposals for papers and panels on the theme of the convention, “Theology and Media(tion): Rendering the Absent Present.” The connections between the convention theme and theological reflection on justice and peace could be explored in a variety of ways, including but not limited to: the role of media in creation of injustice and in the pursuit of justice; faith-based responses to polarization that is stoked by social media and partisan news media; and how embodiment, ritual, sociality, or aesthetics are related to the pursuit of justice and peace.


We also welcome proposals that continue conversations begun at the 2022 convention on questions of race and racism. Finally, we invite proposals on any other topics in justice and peace studies.


Please e-mail proposals simultaneously to both co-convenors by December 15, 2022.
