Secondary Theme: The Political
This panel addresses the internal implications of war, corporate and national policies on the violence within- including domestic, neighborhood and broader issues of gun violence and murder. Papers examine settler colonialism, government policies and the impact of continuous external wars on internal violence such as attacks on specific groups, gun violence and domestic violence both in the United States and elsewhere. The overall theme is to relate the processes of nation, state and imperialism to the experience of violence in everyday life.
