The event brings together scholars from within and without Liverpool to present current research on political violence and violence as a social and political phenomenon. Papers will cover political violence in France in the interwar period, terror and gender, colonial violence and body [and provisional organisations in Northern Ireland]. The event will provide an opportunity to discuss a range of current academic approaches to political violence and make connections across disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.
