CFP: The Specter of Peace in Histories of Violence, August 14-15, 2015

The Tanner Humanities Center is pleased to sponsor a two-day interdisciplinary conference addressing the entangled relationship between peace and violence in the colonial Americas. The conference will define “peace” broadly, framing it as a discourse on governance and as a set of disciplinary practices aimed at shaping, regulating, or limiting violence. Our contention is that scholars underappreciate the importance of peace – both historically and as a category of analysis – to understanding how colonial Americans grappled with the problem of violence and warfare.
