Submission deadline for abstracts: January 31, 2014
Description:
»Topics relevant to this conference may include, but are by no means limited to, the following issues:
1. How have different disciplines examined and explained acts of violence?
2. Is it possible to identify specific cultures of violence in the pre-war era as well as during the war itself?
3. What was the impact of situational and intentional factors on killing and brutalisation?
4. To discuss how we can explain atrocities - as actions motivated by belief, as an unexpectedly horrifying consequence of obeying orders or as matter-of-fact acts of killing.
5. To compare the traumatising effect of violence with pleasure, excitement or gratification in carrying out acts of violence.«
