Link to event

Studying violence and conflict increasingly transgresses disciplinary borders and theoretical boundaries: the complexity of issues requires a dynamic combination of theoretical approaches, interpretative skills, and ways of collecting materials and sources. Analytical and historical interests in studying conflicts and violence, however, are quite different from traditional historical inquires in human behavior: by and large, studies of conflicts are motivated by a pragmatic desire not only to reconstruct the course of tragic events and their consequences but also to understand the causes of such conflicts in order to map out ways of their prevention in the future.

We invite experts and scholars working on conflicts share their views, experience, and problems with studying violence. Please submit your abstract (no more than 300 words) before March 21, 2011. All proposals would be reviewed; the finalists will be asked to submit their essays before 22 April, 2011. Selected articles will be published after the conference in Akademicheskii vestnik (Academic Review of AUCA).
