Description

Cultural products like art, graffiti, cartoons, comics, music and various kinds of performances are used by political actors to stoke up tension and conflict as well as to respond to and protest violence. Theses treating any such cultural expressions are welcome, whether they are based on fieldwork, desk studies or a combination of the two.

The thesis will be written under the auspices of a newly established Centre on Culture and Violent Conflict, co-directed by the three researchers below.
