The theme of our 2nd International conference on Religion will focus on religious values and social violence and public violence. Our society is confronted with social issues that intersect with religious values. Gendered violence continues to be one area of concern in the 21st century. Violence does not only undermine human rights, it disrupts the ability for families to live healthy and productive lives. In our modern society where religious values are sometimes used to sanction violence, nations are obliged to institute policies to protect its citizens. Conveners invite scholars, researchers, activists, students and leaders from around the world to gather for an informative discussion of these important issues. This conference seeks to highlight how religious values affect social dynamics to draw attention to the role of the humanities and social science in public health.

The conference is organized and hosted by the Religious Studies Program, and affiliate programs at East Carolina University and will be held on April 3-5, 2016 at East Carolina University, Greenville North Carolina. Panels and participants will discuss, rethink, review and debate the following themes. Relevant panels, and poster sessions will be considered.
