    • Religion & Spirituality

Ira Chernus (Ph.D., Temple University) is professor of religious studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he teaches courses on religion and nonviolence; religion, war and peace in U.S. history; and religion and nationalism. The former co-director of UC-Boulder’s Peace and Conflict Studies program, his research focuses on discourses of peace, war, foreign policy and nationalism in the United States.

Professor Chernus is the author of nine books and numerous articles and essays. His most recent books include Monsters to Destroy: The Neoconservative War on Terror and Sin (2006), in which he examines the symbols and stories of American culture in ways that shed surprising light on the interrelationship of terms such as “conservative moralism” and “liberal interventionism,” and American Nonviolence: The History of an Idea (2004), which covers the history of nonviolence from colonial times to the present.
