Performing Violence has been developed from the Memory, Trauma and Violence Research Cluster in the Faculty of Arts. It starts from the premise that the performative aspect to violence is an under-researched area of violence studies. The project seeks to correct this, investigating how violence is staged in order to understand how it might best be resisted.
