I was delighted, on 5 March 2021, to participate in an online and highly interdisciplinary workshop on 'Discourses of Mass Violence in Comparative Perspective,' hosted by the Ludwig Maximilians University of Munich.
My talk at the workshop, 'Ideology and Mass Killing: How Groups Justify Genocides and Other Atrocities Against Civilians,' discussed the current state of the debate over ideology's role in mass violence against civilians, as well as previewing some of the key arguments in my forthcoming book, Ideology and Mass Killing, with Oxford University Press.
You can watch my talk, as well as videos of most of the other workshop talks, at the link below. This was a terrific event, and I highly recommend checking out the other videos too! My thanks to Juliane Prade-Weiss, Dominik Markl and Vladimir Petrovic for inviting me, and for organising the event.
