611.22 Readings: Law & Violence
Law and governance are often conceptualized as a means of controlling violence. But law also channels, approves, and even inflicts violence. This reading group will explore some of the foundational thinking about the intersection of law, violence, and justice—particular topics include state-directed violence, the resistance of tyranny (including public and private racial oppression), management of private violence (including self-defense), and other issues suggested by student participants.
This Readings section counts as a PIPS elective.
