Workshop: Generations of Violence – Age Groups, Generation Gaps and the Significance of Violence am 7. Juni 2012

Workshop der Forschergruppe Gewaltgemeinschaften in Kooperation mit dem Centre for Historical Research and Documentation on War and Contemporary Society (Brussels), dem UCD Centre for War Studies (Dublin), dem NIOD Instituut voor Oorlogs-, Holocaust- en Genocidestudies (Amsterdam) und dem EUCOWAS network (European Cooperation on War Studies)
There is no doubt that this diachronically and transculturally extending relation between “generations” on the one hand and “group violence” on the other opens new avenues for current and future research. Therefore, during the conference we would like to tackle two general questions, namely: What common points, dependencies, and relations can be established between collective experiences, milieus, self-representations, etc. ascribed to a given generation or age group and the establishment, evolution and activities of “communities of violence”? How can this particular connection help in the development of some key-concepts, which are currently being elaborated within studies dealing with violence as a social phenomenon in general and the Gewaltgemeinschaften research group in specific?
