Cultures of Violence Workshop

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 discussed 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 for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs; Asian Studies Program; Center for Contemporary Arab Studies; Center for European and German Studies; Department of History; Office of the Provost; School of Foreign Service; and the Indian Embassy.
