Overview

Drawing on contemporary research from across the social sciences and the humanities, including contributions from sociology, history, psychology, film studies and media studies, this edited collection illustrates the ways in which forms of interpersonal violence, and its gendering, are conceptualized, interpreted, resisted and embraced in different contexts and disciplines. Further, it explores the role of language in facilitating and constraining the 'speakability' of interpersonal violence, showing how these forms of violence have become unspeakable-excluding and silencing those experiencing violence. By examining both lived experiences of violence and representations of violence this collection highlights the need for new ways to articulate and conceptualize gendered interpersonal violence in all its manifestations.
