Description of volume:
The McGill Centre for Research on Religion (CREOR) invites contributions to the first edition of the CREOR e-journal, which is dedicated to the theme of Religion and Violence. Scholars are encouraged to submit papers that reflect on the following questions and themes: How has the understanding of the relationship between violence and religion changed over time? How does methodology shape the scholarship on religion and violence? Is religious violence different than secular/non-religious violence? By drawing attention to religious violence how has political discourse overlooked the religious victims of religious or secular violence? Is there a place for discussions of religious conceptions of non-violence in the scholarship on religion and violence? How can policy makers use scriptural sources to promote peace and social cohesion? We welcome interdisciplinary submissions dealing with any tradition or time period.

About the Centre for Research on Religion:
The Centre for Research on Religion (CREOR) is one of McGill’s many academic research centres, but one of only a few in the Humanities, and the sole one in the field of Religious Studies. The Centre is an inter-disciplinary and inter-faculty entity drawing on the expertise and research interests present in the School of Religious Studies and other units in the Faculty of Arts, as well as the Faculties of Education, Law and Medicine, and other faculties at McGill University, such as Management and Music, as well. CREOR is based in the School of Religious Studies in the Faculty of Arts of McGill University, and collaborates with researchers from other Montreal institutions and from universities and colleges around the world.
CREOR eJournal
The eJournal is intended to highlight the scholarly exchanges facilitated by CREOR’s annual conferences, colloquia and lecture series. Each eJournal will take up the theme of the preceding year’s conference. Our hope is to promote publication opportunities for junior scholars and increase interdisciplinarity. This year’s volume has been funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Connections Grant (“Religion and Violence”). The editorial board is comprised of faculty members and graduate students at McGill’s School of Religious Studies.
