The TraCe Lecture Series continues this winter term in Giessen. Titled “Arguing Violence. Making Peace.”, every two weeks on Wednesday evenings the lecture series addresses the question of how violence is argued and how peace is or can be made.
From multidisciplinary perspectives, various scholars will illuminate in their lectures how language can be used both as an instrument to contain the use of violence and to justify it. Whereas one contribution will subject Russian rhetoric to a discourse analysis, while others examine the extent to which anti-Semitism is normalized in the legal use of language in Germany or how theories of just wars include protective potential for war victims. The lecture series will be conclude with a panel discussion on peace options in Colombia. More information on the program can be found here.
The lecture series takes place in English every second Wednesday from 6:15 - 7:45 pm at the GCSC (International Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture), Conference Room 1 - Otto-Behaghel-Straße 12, Giessen.
The events will be streamed live on the TraCe YouTube channel and made available as a recording afterwards.
Unfortunately, the recording of the first session on 25.10.2023 is available only partly due to a technical issue.
