The contributors to Mapping Geographies of Violence explore the multi-layered meaning of violence and the various ways it occupies our daily lives, be they overt, institutional, structural or covert. With an eye towards social justice, each chapter offers a discrete definition of violence and provides readers with a range of theoretical orientations, from social psychology, symbolic interactionism and Marxism to discourse analysis. From these perspectives, several examples of violence are explored: anti-feminism, police raids, gendered violence, mental illness, sex work and poverty.
Mapping Geographies of Violence presents readers with a larger understanding and analysis of how violence, far from just an expression of individuals or groups, is rooted in social constructs like class, patriarchy and racism.
