Intimacy and violence in Anglo Pacific Rim settler colonial societies (ARC Discovery Project administered by the University of Newcastle) (2016–2020)

Abstract:
Violence and intimacy were both fundamental to the formation of settler colonial societies,yet we know surprisingly little of how they were connected. Through a large-scale collaboration of leading scholars this project will produce the first transnational analysis of intimacy and violence as key, intertwined vectors in the development of settler societies across the colonial Anglophone Pacific Rim. Drawing out connections between the broad-scale dynamics of colonial rule and the violent and intimate domains of its implementation on the ground, the project will generate new comparative insights into the development of colonial settler cultures and create enhanced understanding of their legacies for western settler democracies
