Honour Killing Across Culture and Time – Conference Registration Open
Australian National University
7-9 December 2011
Honour-motivated violence is a trans-historical and cross-cultural phenomenon, yet it has recently become a metonym for Islamic and anti-modern cultures.
How can inter-disciplinary conversations unpack this association to produce innovative ways of thinking about and acting against violence justified through claims of honour?
This conference will explore honour killing across periods, places, political contexts, legal regimes and religions. It will bring together scholars, artists and activists. This event will be the ANU Gender Institute's Signature Event for 2011.
