Narrating Violence: Making Race, Making Difference

More information coming in December 2020.
Monday, March 29, 2021 (All day) to Wednesday, March 31, 2021 (All day)

For this event, the Schaeffer Center joins the Winter Symposium of the Nordic Summer University Study Circle Narrative and Violence. A first session, on March 15–17, 2021, will take place at the University of Turku.

This symposium will explore questions arising from narratives of violence produced against racial, ethnic, religious, gender, sexual and political groups. While multiple theoretical perspectives will be included in both locations, the day at the American University of Paris will have a broader international focus and the day at Turku will facilitate a more Nordic/Baltic focus.
