Violence, Vulnerability and Embodiment by Shani D'Cruze
Book DescriptionThis well-illustrated collection uses new and interdisciplinary approaches in gender history to explore violence as a form of gendered embodiment across place and time, from the medieval world to the twenty-first century. It considers the issues across time, from the classical world to the twenty-first century. It covers a wide range of locations, including Africa, China, Europe, India, Latin America, the Middle East, and Russia. It is academically and theoretically innovative. It includes work by authors from different countries and different disciplines. It helps readers to understand violence both as a diagnostic for deeper, more complex historical structures, and as a performative act that can be read symptomatically.
