Abstract or Description

In the contemporary world, environmental transformation, globalization and the digital mediatization of virtually every aspect of human existence, seem both materially and symbolically to demand that we see and make connections between everything and everything else. Yet this same hyper–connectivity becomes an obstacle whenever we need to demonstrate—and thus intervene in—the causes of violent effects. Forensis: The Architecture of Public Truth (2014) takes up this challenge by developing a range of innovative perspectives and methodologies for engaging with some of the most fiercely debated and potentially devastating issues in our political, social, ecological, legal and epistemological landscapes. The diverse group of researchers behind the volume share a recognition of the increasing difficulty of identifying and addressing the complex causes of human and environmental violence, and the increasing urgency today of doing just this.
