Friends may be interested to contribute to the next Friends Association for Higher Education book, “The Future of Quaker Peacemaking: Quakers and the Disciplines, Volume 8,” editor: Lonnie Valentine (Earlham School of Religion).
The Friends Association for Higher Education seeks contributions for a volume of essays exploring the future of Quaker peacemaking. Proposals can be from within any academic discipline as well as from the experience of practitioners.
Proposals of 800-1000 words to be submitted by June 15, 2021. Please click here to submit your proposal. Guidelines include:
- This volume is intended to consider possibilities for the future of Friends’ work for peace with justice. Though essays will draw upon the past and present, the goal is to consider where we go now, given the current state of our Society, our country, humanity, and the earth. We will be looking for a range of foci in the essays selected seeking to cover a wide sampling of ideas and actions.
- Therefore, essays can consider Quaker individuals, movements, and institutions, including our K-12 and college schools, and argue for what we learn from them for the future. Essays are to present the case for what we ought to be doing individually and corporately.
- As best as the editors can, essays will have similar simple formats. This includes a clear opening paragraph stating the claim to be supported and the way (discipline, method, etc.) taken to support the claim, a body of clearly developed argument, and a conclusion summarizing the argument.
- These essays can be developed from presentations made at the Earlham 2021 conference on the theme of “Peacemaking and the Liberal Arts”. Your essay can also be drawn form other conferences or papers, but are to be distinct from prior publications.
- Include proposed questions for discussion.
- Essays are to be submitted in Chicago/Turabian style and Word compatible.
The final essay will be between 4,000 and 8,000 words, including footnotes and bibliography. If you have questions, please contact editor Lonnie Valentine.
