“VIOLENCE: EMPOWERMENT OR SELF-DESTRUCTION”
JAMES MADISON UNIVERSITY: April 3-4, 2014
(in PDF format)
The Department of Foreign Languages, Literatures and Cultures is organizing its twelfth conference at James Madison University with the collaboration of the Departments of English, History, Justice Studies, Philosophy and Religion, Political Science, and Sociology and Anthropology; the Schools of Art and Art History and of Music; and the support of the College of Arts and Letters. This conference will bring together scholars/researchers from a variety of disciplines to address, identify and assess violence. This inter- and multi-disciplinary project will explore the various kinds of violence, the extent to which it has affected civilization, and its range — from self to family, friends, community, and wars between and/or within nations.
