WORLDS OF VIOLENCE with keynote speaker Professor Joanna Bourke
International Postgraduate History Conference
University of Essex, History Department
September 9-10, 2010
Violence has been ubiquitous in history: in relations between the sexes and between the generations; in conflicts between nations, races, classes and ethnic groups; in the disciplining of the ‘deviant' and in the resistance to the powerful. It can be used symbolically and can be construed as legitimate or illegitimate, as honourable or immoral.
This two-day postgraduate conference will explore the varied perceptions and uses of violence in the early modern and modern eras. It aims to encourage reflections on the cultural representations of violence and on its shaping of social relations of all kinds.
Registrations and/or submissions for proposals for papers (consisting of a title and 200-word abstract) should be sent to either firstname.lastname@example.org OR email@example.com by Friday 23rd July 2010. There is no charge and accommodation costs for students wanting to attend will be heavily subsidised.
