about this item

The purpose of this volume on Violence Studies, drawing on the Indian experience, is to demonstrate possibilities for the development of a field of study. One encounters violence in the everyday, every single day overt, raw, brutal manifestations, as well as invisible, insidious forms that normalise violence in consciousness making it ordinary and tolerable. There is little need to provide an exhaustive account of violence as is seen, known, felt and comprehended around ourselves. What is required is a body of writing that interrogates violence. How does one demarcate the field of violence in social theory? How does one understand the norm and the normative in relation to violence? What is its relationship for instance, to faith, authority, dominance, hegemony, crime, law, the state, power, loss, grief/mourning, trauma, rage, hate, love, inequality, discrimination, liberty? How do gender, caste, ideology, class, identity, community, sexual orientation, sexuality, and intersections between any/all of these inflect/constitute violence and how are these in turn constituted by violence? This volume is aimed to clear the path to a better, more complex and coherent understanding of violence that moves beyond the episodic to the systemic, structural levels of society and consciousness.
