Landscapes of Violence

Aims & Scope

Landscapes of Violence (LoV) is a peer reviewed periodical dedicated to fostering a dialogue between scholarly discourses on violence, conflict and trauma in both past and present populations. One of the primary goals of this new journal is to create an inclusive platform designed to reach a broad audience including scientists, academics, policymakers, and the public. To that end, LoV is an open-access journal. Articles will be available to all on the internet, free of charge and without restriction. The objective of LoV is to engage in an interdisciplinary inquiry of the theoretical and empirical issues around the study of violence, conflict, trauma, warfare, and human rights.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • The development of hatred and violence
  • Violence and the self
  • Societal roots of violence
  • Violence in Families, Communities, and Nations
  • Discourse on violence
  • Education and Violence
  • Implications of Violence for Public Policy

Given the radical changes in the dissemination of information brought about by the internet we have decided not to follow a traditional print format for LoV. The journal is published multiple times a year (see "Publication Frequency") and it sometimes includes video and audio formats.
