CFP: Historicising Violence: The Contested Histories of Present Day Conflict

Conference: Historicising Violence : The Contested Histories of Present Day Conflict
Date: November 22-24, 2017
Submission deadline for proposals: September 1, 2017
Description: »Violence is a pervasive but contested facet of 21st century life, manifesting in political, social, cultural and economic spheres as well as in private lives.
