Special Issue "Religion and Genocide"
A special issue of Religions (ISSN 2077-1444).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 March 2017).
Interests: genocide and holocaust studies; religion and violence; history of judaism; ancient israelite religion; hebrew bible; modern religion and politics in the middle east
The under-explored topic of the nexus between religion and genocide in both its institutional (churches, mosques, agencies, etc.) and intellectual (philosophical and theological) settings is worthy of a much fuller exploration and investigation in the field of Genocide Studies where the predominant academic disciplines have been history, political science, and law. Specifically, scholars of religion and religious studies have been among the last to sit at the table and enter into the conversation. The Special Issue of Religions is a contribution towards that end.
