"From linguistic violence to real violence: comparing different national cases in the 1920s and 30s"
Call for Papers Deadline:
"Memoria and Ricerca"
An Italian journal of contemporary history (http://www.racine.ra.it/oriani/memoriaericerca), invites submissions for
issue: 12, "From linguistic violence to real violence: comparing different national cases in the 1920s and 30s"
the issue is devoted to the connection between the use of violent political language and the effective resort to violence in the political field during the interwar period. Its aim is to identify several national cases where the degradation of political communicational codes and the growing use of war metaphors nourished a new discourse, which legitimized violence as an acceptable tool in the political struggle.
The experiences of fascism and nazism are obviously the most striking examples, but our intention is to extend the comparison also to democratic countries such as France, the UK and the US, where the exacerbation of political and social conflict overlapped with a radicalization of political discourse and a growing resort to war metaphors.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: December 31, 2002
