CFP: Encountering Perpetrators of Mass Killings, Political Violence and Genocide

Conference: Encountering Perpetrators of Mass Killings, Political Violence and Genocide
Place: University of Winchester, Winchester, United Kingdom
Date: September 1-3, 2015
Submission deadline for proposals: March 31, 2015
Description:
»The 20th & 21st centuries have borne witness to mass killings, political violence & genocide. As we move into the new millennium the people who have orchestrated & participated in such acts remain figures of fascination & of revulsion in Western society. Yet despite this enduring fascination, and the importance of understanding the dynamics of violence, there is a reluctance in the public sphere and in education to address the complexities of engaging with or representing these perpetrators.
This reluctance poses the question of just how much is known or understood about those who commit such acts. This interdisciplinary conference aims to confront difficult questions about perpetrators through an exploration of the topic in a variety of memory spaces including literature, film, museums, education, trials & the media.«
