Period: Jul. 4-10, 2012
Application deadline: Apr. 15, 2012


Fourth International Social Science Summer School “Violence and its Aftermath in the Soviet and Post-Soviet Context”

 
The Fourth International Social Science Summer School in Ukraine will provide a unique forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest research on violence issues, involving specialists of the topic, as well as young promising researchers.

The School is interdisciplinary. The organizers welcome proposals from the disciplines of history, sociology, anthropology, political science, economics, and adjacent fields. While the primary focus will be on the socialist and post-socialist era (in the former Soviet Union, Central, Eastern and Southern Europe), pre-Soviet history may also be examined. The discussions and presentations will analyze different dimensions of violence: war and non-war situations; state management of violence, as well as individual and collective strategies; mechanisms of violence outbreak; violent practices and post-violence situations; perpetrators and victims; sources and methods.

Some of the issues of particular interest to the School include:
• State monopoly of violence, implementation and resistance (past and present)
• War and post-war, conflict situations
• Violent practices and violent behaviour
• Memory and representation of violence
