Course Description: This course explores the manner in which violence has been used by individuals, communities, and the state over time, as well as the way in which that use has been perceived and portrayed in the modern world from the 16th century to the present. The course is organized around three key themes. First, the power and practice of violence explores the origins, causes, and experience of violence through changing technologies – from the rifle to the smart bomb to drones. Second, the images of violence are examined through the spectacle and representation of violence through different media over time. Finally, an analysis of the legacies and aftermaths examines how violence is remembered and how it is forgotten.
