New Books in Perpetrator Studies Series Continues!

This spring the Perpetrator Studies Network launched its New Books in Perpetrator Studies series. The response has been overwhelmingly positive – and so much so that we have decided to continue the series into the fall. We are therefore inviting authors with new and forthcoming books on perpetrators and perpetration of genocide and mass violence to contact us about a possible date for a book launch. The New Books in Perpetrator Studies series introduces recent publications in the field and brings authors into conversation with researchers from other disciplines. The aim is to foster dialogue, across disciplines, on key issues currently discussed in perpetrator studies (concerning methodology, theory, ethics, representation, etc.), and to explore the conditions that enable acts of collective (and) political violence, as well as to engage critically with the very concept of “perpetrator” or “perpetration”.
If you are interested in launching your book through the Perpetrator Studies Network, please contact Susanne Knittel (s.c.knittel@uu.nl) and Timothy Williams (timothy.williams@unibw.de) by 31 May 2021.
Your book launch proposal should include the following details:
  • Book title
  • Author(s)/editor(s)
  • Publisher and publication date (expected or forthcoming, the book launch must occur after it has been published)
  • Abstract of book
  • Disciplines it speaks to and relevance for perpetrator studies
  • Potential discussants
  • Suggestion for format (e.g. presentation and response(s), roundtable, Q&A, etc.).
