Announcing the Library of Social Science Symposium on the Psychological
Interpretation of War
January 15-17, 2004, New York City
 
 
            The phenomenon of warfare is under-theorized to the extent
that it is a virtual blank spot in social theory, despite that fact that
war has shaped the course of history.  Rather than interpreting the
causes and meanings of extreme violence in war, social scientists have
accepted the conventional idea that war is a fact of life.
 
            This symposium is undertaken in response to the inadequacy
of contemporary theorization proclaiming that social phenomena can be
explained merely by identifying their “narratives” or “discursive
practices.” With regard to the massive destructiveness of warfare it is
necessary to pose the question: What precisely are the motives—the
desires, fantasies and anxieties—underlying the human propensity to die
and kill in the name of sociopolitical ideologies?
 
With the goal of analyzing the psychological and cultural mechanisms
underlying collective violence in war, militarism, and the related
phenomena of genocide and terrorism, the Library of Social Science put
forth a call for papers that generated 200 proposals from scholars and
professionals around the world.
 
A select group of scholars from the fields of psychology, psychiatry,
sociology, anthropology, history, philosophy, literature, law, military
science, and religious studies have been invited for intensive
high-level dialogue in a seminar workshop format to develop ideas and
hypotheses on the dynamics of warfare.
 
Featured speakers include:
 
• Ana Carden-Coyne, Ph.D., Professor, Centre for the Cultural History of
War, University of Manchester, “American Guts and Military Manhood”
 
•Gillian Gillison, Ph.D., Professor of Religious Studies, University of
Toronto: “There Are None So Blind”
 
•Richard Koenigsberg, Ph.D., Director, Library of Social Science, “Dying
and Killing for Nations: The Psychology of War and Genocide”
 
•Ron Leifer, M.D., Psychiatrist in private practice: “The Roots of War”
 
· Olek Netzer, Ph.D., Research Psychologist, Kibbutz Barkai, Israel:
“The Virus of Dehumanization: Deciphering the Code of Destructive
Behavior in Inter-Group Conflict”
 
•Eelco Runia, Ph.D., Research Fellow, Groningen University: “Vertigo”
 
•Juha Siltala, Ph.D., Professor of Finnish History, Helsinki University:
“A Nation Reborn out of Young Blood: Sacrificial Fantasies in the
Finnish Civil War, 1917-1918”
 
•James E. Waller, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Whitworth College:
“Becoming Evil: How Ordinary People Commit Genocide and Mass Killing”
 
            The Library of Social Science is a center devoted to the
creation and dissemination on scholarship that has the potential to
impact on the real world.  Please visit our website at
