In understanding violence as a source and product of human action we need to go beyond a simplistic understanding. This two-day workshop explored how cultures of violence are constituted, reproduced, perpetuated, and normalized through institutions, memories, and discursive practices. Interdisciplinary panels will discuss the institutions, practices and spaces of violence; memories, experiences and narratives of violence; and discourses, philosophies and imaginations of violence.
This conference was co-sponsored by the Berkley Center; Georgetown University Office of the Provost; the School of Foreign Service; the Departments of History, Asian Studies, and Contemporary Arab Studies; the Center for European and German Studies; and the Indian Embassy.
