COV&R-Bulletin No. 1 (Sept. 1991)
The Colloquium on Violence and Religion will meet in Kansas City on Saturday, November 23, 9 a.m. to 12 noon, in conjunction with the annual meeting of the American Academy of Religion and Society of Biblical Literature. The meeting will take place in Bartle Hall 210N. The main part of the program, beginning at 10 a.m. will be devoted to a discussion of Eugene Webb's chapter on Girard in Philosophers of Conscience. Prof. Webb will be present, and Professors Andrew McKenna of Loyola-Chicago and Mark Wallace of Swarthmore will serve as respondents. From 9-10 a.m. those attending will have coffee and rolls and be given information concerning COV&R. A brief report on the conference at the University of Innsbruck Sept. 25-28 on "Dramatische Erlösungslehre" will also be made.
The next annual meeting will take place May 6 to 9, 1992 at Stanford. The provisional theme is "Ethnocentrism in the Study of Violence," on which a select number of speakers will be invited. Provision will also be made for sections or workshops for volunteered papers or panel proposals. Everyone liked our format of pre-circulating papers and having presenters summarize in order to allow more time for discussion, so we will continue that. The deadline for paper or section proposals is December 31, 1991. The deadline for submission of papers is March 1, 1992.
