Hospitality for Strangers and Legal Sanctuary: Interfaith Perspectives
The Institute for Contesting Religious Violence (IFCRV) presents its Spring Colloquium on Theological Understandings of Hospitality for Strangers and Legal Sanctuary to be held on the campus of Union Theological Seminary in New York on Friday, April 28, 2017.
IFCRV is seeking submission of presentations across religious traditions elucidating scriptural, canonical and spiritual prescripts for the gifts of hospitality and sanctuary to the stranger. The intention is that these will be podium presentations that can quickly be transformed into a publishable manuscript in order to intervene with a scholarly contribution in the current travel ban crisis.
IFCRV welcomes submissions of short papers by undergraduate and graduate students on the subject. If accepted papers will be displayed as abstracts of 500 works in poster presentation. The abstracts will be judged for clarity of content, rigor of research and presentation. A $250 prize will be awarded for the best undergraduate paper and $500 for the best graduate level paper at both the master’s and Ph.D. levels. All accepted abstracts will be eligible for publication in the supplement to the planned publication of the meeting’s main papers.
