EARL ROBINSON MEMORIAL LECTURES: CHRISTIAN FAITH IN THE WORLD
Booth UC will once again host the Earl Robinson Memorial Lecture Series in the fall and winter. This year it will take place online.
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2021 – 7:00 PM CST (8:00 PM EASTERN)
Dr. Rebecca Carter-Chand presents “Historical Perspectives on War and Peace in The Salvation Army”
This lecture will explore The Salvation Army’s perspectives on war and peace and its actions during various wars and conflicts throughout its history, including colonial contexts, the two world wars, the Irish Troubles, and 9/11. Dr. Carter-Chand will discuss various ways that Salvationists have tried to uphold the principles of internationalism and political neutrality, as well as the ways in which war challenges these efforts.
Dr. Rebecca Carter-Chand is the Acting Director of the Programs on Ethics, Religion, and the Holocaust at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC. Her areas of research include the history of minority churches in Nazi Germany and the Salvation Army during World War II. Her publications on Salvation Army history include, “The Politics of Being Apolitical: The Salvation Army and the Nazi Revolution” in Word & Deed (2016) and “A Relationship of Pragmatism and Conviction: The International Salvation Army and the German Heilsarmee in the Nazi Era” in Kirchliche Zeitgeschichte/Contemporary Church History (forthcoming 2020). She is currently co-editing a volume, Religion and Ethnonationalism in the Era of the Two World Wars (with Kevin Spicer, under contract with McGill-Queen’s University Press).
