Workshop: The Intimate Geopolitics of Violent Insecurities Symposium

7th March 2013, 10:00 to 13:30, seminar Room, Howlands Building, Ustinov College, South Road, Durham University, DH1 3DE



The symposium draws together research that examines the everyday and intimate nature of 'political' and international violence and insecurity, and the geopolitics of intimate and 'private' violence and insecurity. It includes forms of violence beyond the physical, for example emotional, institutional and representational violences, highlighting their role in creating insecurities that disproportionately affect socially, economically and politically marginalised people.

This framing has direct implications for responses to violence and insecurities: which receive attention and resourcing, and from whom; and the assumptions, nature and effects of policies and practices of security and securitization. The intention is that the workshop will draw on research from diverse empirical sites including the home, public space, the nation state and war zones, to explore how different spaces are implicated in creating and challenging insecurity.
