Summary
This volume explores violent perpetration in diverse forms from an interdisciplinary and transnational perspective. From National Socialist perpetration in the museum, through post-terrorist life writing to embodied performances of perpetration in cosplay, the collection draws upon a series of historical and geographical case studies, seen through the lens of a variety of texts, with a particular focus on the locus of the museum as a technology of sense making. In addition to its authored chapters, the volume includes three contributed interviews which offer a practice-led perspective on the topic. Through its wide-ranging approach to violence, the volume draws attention to the contested and gendered nature of what is constructed as 'perpetration'. With a focus on perpetrator subjectivity or the 'perpetrator self', it proposes that we approach perpetration as a form of 'doing'; and a 'doing' that is bound up with the 'doing' of one's gendered identity more broadly. The work will be of great interest to students and scholars working on violence and perpetration in the fields of History, Literary Studies, Area Studies, Women's and Gender Studies, Museum Studies, Cultural Studies, International Relations and Political Science.--
