Primary Session Category: Race and Ethnicity
Session Code: REth1-A
Session Format: Regular (Presentations and Discussion)

Session Description: This session explores the role of structural and everyday violence in managing and naturalizing geographical, ideological and identity borders in the context of colonialisms, imperialisms and neoliberalisms. Of particular interest are papers that complicate the targeted/random, stranger/interpersonal, public/private, collective/individual, everyday/structural, gendered violence/racial violence and local/global dichotomies that categorize legal and public framings of violence. Papers can be situated within a variety of historical and contemporary contexts. Topics may include racialized sexual violence, the war on terrorism, institutionalization and incarceration of marginalized groups, and structural violence targeting Indigenous peoples.
