Handbook on Gender and Violence

About the eBook

Containing contributions from leading experts in the field, this Handbook explores the many ways gender and violence interact across different contexts and offers a range of disciplinary perspectives. This comprehensive work connects micro-level interpersonal violence to macro-level structural forms of violence across three discrete but interrelated sections: concepts, representations, and contexts.

Part one considers the core concepts of gender and violence alongside related concepts including sex, sexualities, patriarchy, and security, elaborating on the research tools used within these areas. Part two investigates the different ways in which gender and violence are enacted through various representational practices, including film, policy, and online. The final part is devoted to the examination of gender and violence in a range of empirical settings, including different spheres of activity, from economic to juridical.

Presenting an in-depth overview of the topic, this Handbook on Gender and Violence will be a key resource for researchers who are new to the study of gender and violence. More experienced academics will also benefit from the up-to-date insights on key research themes in the field.
