Political theologies of enmity: time and the other
18 - 19 March 2024, 09:00 - 18:00
New College, Oxford
Invited audience only
This conference will consider the temporalities of enmity across the Christian and other Abrahamic traditions: the shaping of time and the enmity in political theology, the repertoires that help political communities move beyond them, and ways in which communities move through the making and unmaking of enemies.
This interdisciplinary conference builds on the Political Theologies after Christendom conference, held at Oxford in 2022, which discussed the need for political theologies that answer for the role of religion in major atrocities: from the Holodomor to Holocaust and to Apartheid, the Yugoslav war, and Bucha.
The conference is part of the project ‘Protestant Political Thought: Religion, State, Nation’, hosted at the Blavatnik School of Government.
