The Impact of World War I on Quaker Thought and Practice
To commemorate the global World War I Centenary that concludes at the end of this year, the QTDG invites paper proposals on a wide range of topics related to the impact of the war – including its lead up and aftermath – upon Quaker thought in the Twentieth Century. Papers would explore: Quaker thought and action related to peace, justice, and violence: new theological trends to emerge from the impact of the war: and new organizations for relief work in Europe, reflected in the work of leading Quaker voices and activists such as Henry Cadbury, William Hull, Rufus Jones, Neave Brayshaw, Ruth Fry and many others.
