This conference is one of a continuing series that aims to bring together people from a wide range of disciplines to focus on a centrally significant aspect of our social lives: violence. On this multi- and inter-disciplinary basis we aim to produce an evolving body of thought as a contribution to the attempt to understand the nature and place of violence in our lives.

The main themes for the 2010 conference are outlined below: however, we are also pleased to receive proposals that extend or complement these.

Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona

Andrew Monnickendam and Aránzazu Usandizaga, editors of Back to Peace: Reconciliation and Retribution in the Postwar Period (2007), a Choice Outstanding Academic Title, are looking for contributions for a project entitled Embattled Desires. The volume aims to show how the literary expression of desire is modified and gradually expanded as a result of the political and ethical disruption brought about by conflict. War creates a space in which communal values become simultaneously enforced and eroded in a radical way, exacerbating the instabilities of individual identity.

POP Goes the Region

The small town, the local, and regionalism have long been considered precious territory to be guarded by grassroots music and local art movements, enshrined in high letters, and embalmed in obscurity. This issue of LiNQ (Literature in North Queensland) seeks to challenge and update this notion of the regional. As the Internet connects us in a global village of downloadable ephemera, the local community is redefined. How does the region connect with the popular?
