This volume presents many of the lectures given at the conference which took place in Linköping on 12th – 14th October 2010: Violences and Silences: Shaming, Blaming – and Intervening (see Appendix for program). Thirty-five participants gathered from all over the world and gave lectures and seminar papers on the most varying topics. Due to the rather small format of the conference, many new contacts arose and several new research networks were created during and in the aftermath of the conference.
All participants were invited to submit papers for this volume and we were delighted that so many of them did.
The conference took place during the seventh research theme of the Centre of Gender Excellence, GEXcel, during the autumn 2010 in Linköping: Getting Rid of Violence. TRANSdisciplinary, TRANSnational and TRANSformative Feminist Dialogues on Embodiment, Emotions and Ethics. In short, the theme was called The Violence Theme. During this theme, invited GEXcel scholars were working with their research projects at the Department of Gender Studies, Linköping University for various periods of time, and during the period from October till December 2010 all of them were in place. A very dynamic research milieu was thus created, which probably is reflected also in the outcome of the conference, and might be visible also in the present book.
This volume is literally a “Work in Progress” report, meaning that some of its texts are not preliminary as to intellectual content but will in future be elaborated more before they are finally published. Only some minor editorial comments and suggestions have been exchanged between the authors and the editors. The texts from authors who do not have the English language as their native tongue have gone through a formal language check by a native English speaking editor.
We thank Berit Starkman, Björn Pernrud, Ulrica Engdahl, and Claire Tucker for all their efforts in the practical arrangements for the theme and the conference, Ka Schmitz for the illustrations for the programme, Liz Sourbut for excellent work with English language corrections and Tomas Hägg for his careful work with the printing of this book.
