Framing Violence: A Multidisciplinary Symposium on Theorizing Frames
July 1st & 2nd, 2016
John F. Kennedy Institute, Freie Universität Berlin
Violence can take the form of a physical or verbal act of aggression, be inherent to an institutionalized practice, can be perpetrated and experienced. Attitudes towards violence (for example, whether an act of war is ‘justified’) can hold very different if not competing implications. How violent acts are perceived, mediated, and thought about — in short, how they are framed — can have a significant impact.
