Call for Abstracts
SESSION 1: Celebrating the Work of Bat-Aman Bar On
Bat-Ami Bar On, professor of philosophy, Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and Judaic Studies at Binghamton University, director of the university’s Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, passed away in 2020. Professor Bar On was a vibrant, brilliant, and deeply thoughtful person, and we invite abstracts on papers that engage with Bar On’s life, work, and impact on nonviolence and peace.
Her philosophical interests were diverse, but all connected with a thread of responding to violence. From the most individualized (constitution of violent bodies), to the more international—refugees and what we ought to do for them. Her final published article was on Fascism (“But Is It Fascism?”), but her latest interest were refugees.
SESSION 2: General Session On Nonviolence, Peace, and Related Topics
We invite abstracts dealing with any topic relevant to nonviolence and peace studies.
