My colleague Ian Lee and I are presently seeking panel members for the 2019 WHA conference in Las Vegas. Our panel is tentatively entitled “Monopolies on Violence,” referencing philosopher Max Weber’s theories on this topic as a determining factor in the creation of a statehood. We are interested in examining the ways in which the violence is used not just a weapon of war or physical intimidation, but also as a tool of societal unification and power consolidation.
