The Micro-Dynamics Of Violence

This October, Violence Studies Oxford and The University of Exeter’s Centre for the Study of War, State and Society will co-host a 2-day conference at Wolfson College Oxford. The program has two primary themes: ‘Writing Violence’ and ‘Understanding Violence’. From the overwhelming response to our call for papers we have designed a program of 9 panels to interrogate these two major themes.
