Framing Violence Workshop

Edge + Digital Scholarship Events - Sat, 04/18/2015 - 13:30
Sat, Apr 18, 2015: 9:30 AM - 5:30 PM
Edge: Workshop Room

As an analytical and conceptual category, violence enables the intersection of multiple disciplinary, field-specific and geographical approaches. The conference organizers conceive of violence broadly through activities that include but are not restricted to conflict, intervention, social or political discipline, warfare, aggression, intimidation, cruelty, religious and racial persecution, neglect, manipulation, crime, punishment and accusation.  We envision a conversation among intellectuals who study violence, and historical constructions of the category of violence, as tools for examining legal and political discourse, social practice, cultural performance, religious and state-based conflict and constructions of gender, narrative and memory. 
 
The workshop will revolve around short pre-circulated papers, available at the end of March.  During each session, presenters will speak briefly to their paper.  A respondent will highlight themes and questions raised by the papers, and we will devote the bulk of the session to general discussion in the round-table mode.
 
The workshop is open to all who are interested. 

RSVP Ms. Jamie Hardy (jamie.hardy@duke.edu) to receive pre-circulated papers and for lunch on Saturday.
