PUBLIC TALK: Why is religious violence on the rise?
In this public lecture, Professor Graham K. Brown, Head of the School of Social Sciences at UWA, will take a critical look at the rise of religious violence around the world. In mainstream and popular academic discourse, it is often presumed that religious violence has been on the rise. Yet accurately characterising what constitutes 'religious violence' turns out to be more difficult than one might assume. This talk will challenge this presumption.
