The ANU has many researchers who approach the history of violence and its legacies. From the ‘big bang’ and the formation of the universe to the collapse of ecosystems, to neural imaging of trans-generational trauma, to requiems and elegies, to restorative justice initiatives, to battlefield tourism and re-enactment, to truth commissions and testimony, to reparations this topic can be interpreted from many angles. Although ANU has the range of disciplines to explore violence, its history and legacies, expansively, it does not yet have a way to connect researchers and to explore the prospect of collaborative research. With funding from the Research School of Social Scienes Strategic Initiative Grant, Professor Carolyn Strange is seeking affiliates to join a cross-campus network, which will feature an annual ‘research roadshow’. Academics and HDR students working in these fields from any disciplinary perspective are encouraged to attend this network launch.
