A new dynamic political landscape with acts of violence and terror, adrift from traditional nation-state boundaries, and new military innovations have changed the portrait of modern war. It is into these moving yet murky waters that Jean Bethke Elshtain waded in her books and essays, asking anew the abiding question of how we may defend ourselves within the limits of justice.
This conference brings together senior scholars (http://divinity.uchicago.edu/engaged-mind-just-war-against-terror) to address questions regarding modern warfare, war and gender, and international justice, as it also assesses Elshtain's political, ethical, and theological contributions to an ever relevant conversation of the challenge ethics poses to a war against terror begun over a decade ago.
Please note that this is a two-day conference, October 17-18.
