It has become apparent with the sixth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, and the tenth anniversary of 9/11, that major traumatic events continue to resonate in both the individual and social consciousness - perhaps more in the 21st century than ever before. Remembering, rethinking, reworking, and reimagining are just a few of the ways in which authors and artists, historians and critics, audiences and citizens have explored their own traumatic experiences, as well as the traumatic events that continue to impact larger communities.

"Violence commands both literature and life, and violence is often crude and distorted." – Ellen Glasgow
Violence is an ever-present phenomenon in literary texts. From Homer's graphic descriptions of infantry combat in the Iliad, to Wilfred Owen's haunting portrayal of the war-torn fields of Europe, to Edith Wharton's subtle critique of Old New York as a place of ruthless social warfare, representations of violence powerfully call our attention to questions of authority, agency and power.
