Honour Killing Across Culture and Time

conference logoAustralian National University
Canberra, Australia
7-9 December 2011

Honour-motivated violence is a trans-historical and cross-cultural phenomenon, yet it has recently become a metonym for Islamic and anti-modern cultures. How can inter-disciplinary conversations unpack this association to produce innovative ways of thinking about and acting against violence justified through claims of honour?

This conference will explore honour killing across periods, places, political contexts, legal regimes and religions. This event will be the ANUGender Institute's Signature Event for 2011.
