Specter of Peace in the Histories of Violence is a conference that will take place on August 14-15, 2015, at the Tanner Humanities Center on the campus of the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. This conference will explore the theme of peace as it relates to the negotiation of violence, the legitimation of authority, and the racial and gendered ordering of the early American frontier. Ten scholars from United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom will be presenting their work on topics related to Native American and imperial history, colonization, warfare, and slavery. Dr. Wayne Lee, professor of history and chair of the Curriculum in Peace, War, and Defense at UNC Chapel Hill, will be the keynote speaker.
