>6th Global Conference
>Violence, Contexts and the Construction of Enemies
>
>Wednesday 2nd May - Saturday 5th May 2007
>Budapest, Hungary
>
>Call for Papers
>
>This multi- and inter-disciplinary research and publications 
>conference aims to identify and understand violence in contemporary 
>life. The project will pay particular attention to the different 
>contexts and places where violence develops, occurs and where its 
>effects are felt; from the interpersonal to the international, from 
>the empirical to the symbolic. Attention will also focus on 
>uncovering the motives, dynamics and functions that violence has for 
>individuals, groups, populations and societies, as well as for bonds 
>and social relations in the private, institutional and public 
>spheres of life. Exploring and understanding representations of 
>violence in media, art and literature is a key part of the 
>conference.
>
>Violence has been part of societies and used as a political tool in 
>multiple ways: to unite or divide, to produce fear and compliance, 
>to incite or neutralize mobilization, to resist domination or to 
>impose subordination. It has been touted as the only path for 
>liberation or the inevitable road to annihilation and destruction, 
>as a necessary means for transformation or as the ultimate form to 
>avoid change and defend the status quo. And despite global, national 
>and local efforts to minimize, reduce or eliminate it
>violence remains a horrifying feature of today's world and life.
>
>The conference will be structured around seven main themes; papers, 
>presentations, reports and workshops are invited on the following:
>
>1. Perspectives for Understanding Violence
>Exploring the methodologies available for uncovering the underlying 
>factors which contribute to violence, the perspectives provided by 
>all disciplines and field practitioners for attempting to understand 
>violence and the models available for developing interdisciplinary 
>studies for comprehending the complexities of violence.
>
>2. Motives and Goals of Violence
>Assessing the impulses, motivations, invitations and the allure of 
>violence; analysing the motives and goals of violent attitudes, acts 
>and behaviours.
>
>     * Being and becoming violent
>     * Rage, anger, hatred and violence.

>     * The "hard" and "soft" violence of discrimination
>     * Alienation, isolation, marginality
>     * Mental illness, deviance and violence
>     * Violence as a social pathology

>     * Discourse, ethics and legitimacy: When is violence justified?
>     * From the "top-down"
>     * From the "bottom-up"
>     * As defence and protection
>     * As resistance to domination
>
>3. Generating Enemies, Being Violent

>violence; identifying the processes that generate and establish 
>violence as part of life and as normal.

>disdain, trust and fear
>     * How to identify elusive forms of violence?
>     * The violent process of normalisation and the normality of violence
>

>space, frames of mind and social institutions.
>
>     * Domestic violence directed toward families, women, men and children
>     * Community violence directed toward ethnic and minority groups, 
>racialised groups, issues of nationalism, youth and gang violence, 
>hooliganism
>     * Institutional violence - violence in the workplace, schools, 
>hospitals, police and law enforcement agencies
>     * State violence - as both an internal phenomenon (against 
>citizenry - civil war, terrorism and the metropolis; repression; 
>'surveillance' culture post 9/11; legitimation of violence through 
>the law, punishment and capital punishment) as well as an external 
>phenomenon (cultures of war and militarism, 'intervention' and 
>'pre-emptive' policies, cultures of societies that develop into 
>warlike states, religion, religious institutions, and their role in 
>curtailing or propelling violence; religious fundamentalism and 
>violence)
>     * The use of violence to achieve peace (e.g., the human/animal 
>rights agenda, resistance movements), anti-globalisation violence, 
>anti-vivisection violence
>
>5. Violence, Victims and Others

>victims. Understanding the subjects that produce violence and
