The ISRF Bulletin

Beginning with the November 2013 inaugural issue, the thrice-yearly ISRF Bulletin will provide information on the interdisciplinary research of its Fellows. Each issue will be themed around a topic, methodology or debate of interest within (and across) the social sciences, and will consist of a number of short articles produced by our Fellows based on their research, as well as calling on our academic advisors and others following the ISRF’s work for their views.

Queries regarding the bulletin should be directed to Dr Lars Cornelissen

Issue XX: Society and Violence

Over the past year, the ISRF has invited its fellows and associates to think through the problem of violence. Without forcing anyone to confront it directly, we let this question guide our thinking around the 2019 Annual Workshop, held in Oxford, as well as a number of smaller workshops and study days. Alongside many generative discussions this gave rise to two issues of the Bulletin: Mind and Violence, published in June of this year, and the one before you now. Entitled Society and Violence, the present issue seeks to continue the line of questioning set out in the former.

Featuring contributions from Henrique Carvalho, Beth Epstein, Jonathan Saha, Andrew Robertson, and Elizabeth Frazer.
