CFP: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Peace and Conflict

Calls for Submissions, Events

Cornell University’s 2021-2022 Judith Reppy Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies Graduate Fellows will host the fifth annual Reppy Institute graduate student conference, to be held on Saturday, April 23, 2022. Submissions are due by February 20, 2022.

The organizers hope to elicit submissions from graduate students whose work seeks to answer questions pertaining to global peace and conflict using innovative methods, novel theoretical applications, and creative interdisciplinary approaches.

This conference invites submission of abstracts from graduate students from fields including, but not limited to, government, sociology, history, science and technology studies, anthropology, philosophy, law, and communications. Topics should be related to the Reppy Institute’s interest in the problems of war and peace, arms control and disarmament, and instances of collective violence.

Useful questions for developing abstracts for this conference include, but are not limited to:

  • How do law, technology, peace, and conflict intersect, both conceptually and in historical or contemporary contexts?
  • How have national/international legal structures been used to mediate conflicts and define peace?
  • How have technologies been deployed in peace/conflict scenarios? How do specific technological artifacts or systems embody the politics of peace or conflict?
