Cultures, social bonds and dynamics of violence are studied in the intimate spaces of family relationships, in public spaces, and in the various forms of systemic violence expressed in historical processes, economic and political structures. Representations of violence in social landscapes, media, and literature invite a reflection on the spectacle and representation of violence, and on the ways in which violence is incorporated into daily practices, normalized and made invisible. The study of violence increasingly encompasses new subjects and areas of study from diverse disciplines. This volume attests this direction in the production of knowledge on violence by including a broad array of topics and methodological approaches. Topics include elder abuse, lethal and non-lethal violence in intimate partner relations, violence as spectacle and entertainment, metaphors of power and domination in literature, crowd violence, electoral and ethnic violence as well as perspectives on restoration and healing.
