CFP: Worlds of Violence

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."
Submission deadline for proposals: July 23, 2010.
