By bringing together researchers from a wide range of disciplines (including law, ethics, cultural studies, psychology, international relations, religious studies, history, literary and media studies), this inter-disciplinary conference will explore how people of faith have come to terms with the traumas, dilemmas and challenges of modern conflict, addressing the origins, range, and impact of their responses, and their significance for religion, culture, ethics, non-governmental organisations, international relations, and international law. As the centenary of the First World War unfolds, proposals focusing on that era are welcome, but those relating to the entire period c.1700 to the present will also be warmly received.
A case may also be made for presenting a paper on an earlier period if it can be shown that it will be of special relevance to the theme of the conference. It is intended that a selection of the conference papers will be published in the Defence Academy Yearbook 2017.
The conference will be hosted by the staff of the Armed Forces Chaplaincy Centre (AFCC) and will be co-ordinated by Canon Professor Michael Snape (Michael Ramsey Professor of Anglican Studies, Durham University), Dr Emma Hanna (Senior Research Fellow, School of History, University of Kent), and Dr Alastair Lockhart (Affiliated Lecturer, Faculty of Divinity, University of Cambridge).
