Description

Join Davide Brotherton, Cynthia Enloe, Marcia Esparza, and Costas Panayotakis for an interdisciplinary panel exploring the complex relationships between violence—violence rooted not only in war, but in the militarization of everyday life—and poverty at the level of both global and local conflict, from the Dominican Republic to Iraq, from Guatemala to Greece.

This panel is part of a series of initiatives around the 2012–2013 Mellon Seminar in the Humanities on Poverty.

Cosponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Seminar in the Humanities and the Initiative on Inequality, Advanced Research Collaborative. #InQ13
