Professor Margaret MacMillan
Emeritus Professor of History at the University of Toronto and an Emeritus Professor of International History at Oxford University. Professor MacMillan will discuss the uses of violence in war.
The keynote lecture is a public event open to all.
The history of war is the history of violence. But historians of war have yet to unravel the many layers, logics, and dimensions of violence as it is inflicted and endured in the context of military conflict. By contrast, historians of violence have recently made important contributions to the theoretical and empirical framing of violence as a concept, as a political tool, as a social practice, and as a cultural phenomenon. In this conference, we aim to broaden discussions between historians of violence and historians of war. This will make it possible to explore, discuss and deconstruct different empirical, methodological and interdisciplinary approaches to the study of war and violence.
