This is a graduate conference to be held 18 October 2008 at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA. It will explore the ways in which violence is manifest in political, social and economic realms, and the various roles violence plays in the relation between these realms in any specific juncture, past or present. It will examine the ways in which violence is theorized, enacted, represented and obscured, and how we come to understand the role of historic violence in the construction of the contemporary cultural conjuncture, as well as how various histories influence the ways in which we relate to and theorize violence today.
