Description

Violence is embedded in our everyday lives. We encounter not only its overt, raw, and brutal nature but also its invisible and insidious forms that normalize it in the collective conscience.

This volume opens the field of violence studies with a focus on its myriad habitations and experiences in India. It interrogates the numerous ways in which omnipresent violence is interpreted and represented, and delves into the interconnections between the identifiable normative axes of power and engendering of violence. Bringing together fresh methodological and conceptual perspectives on the way violence is understood and analysed, the contributors investigate its occurrence across family, state, labour, caste, gender, sexuality, and so on. Belonging to the series Oxford India Studies in Contemporary Society, Violence Studies aims to provide a more nuanced understanding of violence that moves beyond the episodic to the systemic, structural levels of society and consciousness.
