Research Project


This project studies authors such as Hannah Arendt, Virginia Woolf, and James Baldwin whose writing reckons with the way violence occurs among people in order to understand how my own place in the world has shaped the way I see violence. Through personal narrative I consider my own experience as well as writing that has already begun to think about how violence is implemented through raced and gendered structures of power. How do factors like race, gender, class, and education contribute to our own understanding of what a violent act is, and how we understand what that act can mean?
