The principle of nonviolence, also known as nonviolent resistance, rejects the use of physical violence to achieve social or political change. History shows that the success of peaceful social transformation depends largely on individuals who are charismatic, knowledgeable, skilled in the strategies and methods of nonviolence (M. Gandhi, M L King, Rigoberta Menchu, Dolores Huerta, Viola Desmond, Wangari Waathai, and many more). Gene Sharp coined the term revolutionary nonviolence in the 20 century and transformed the meaning of the nonviolence from the passive to an active agent as a framework for creating peace.

I invite faculty members, researchers and practitioners to submit a proposal to a potential second edited volume, specifically on Women and Nonviolence to be published with Cambridge Scholars Publishing in 2020/2021.

This  interdisciplinary volume is open to numerous disciplines such as: Sociology, Cultural Studies, Gender and Women StudiesHistory, Language and Literature, Religious Studies and Indigenous Studies.

Please send an abstract of about 300 words to Dr. Anna Hamling  (ahamling@unb.ca) by November 30, 2019. Please also submit your CV (maximum 200 words).

Selected authors will be notified and invited to submit chapters of 6000-8000 words by June 1, 2020.
