One of the characteristics of postmodernity is the global flow of people, goods, capital, and information within a single system of production and exchange legitimized by the logic of late capitalism. Global connections have enhanced citizens’ feelings of increasing violence in our midst, whether state-enforced or counter-hegemonic. In addition, violence often operates at many levels (political, economic, social) in what has been considered a gendered continuum that positions men and women differently as perpetrators or victims. This panel invites discussion of public discourses about violence and its social significance, representation, and circulation in literary and other cultural texts in the context of English Studies.
