Mass violence has sullied the register of the twentieth century. In the colonies, across the battlefields of the two world wars, under totalitarian regimes or in the midst of bitter civil wars, mass violence has been a taboo broken on so many occasions with devastating and lasting consequences. The module examines the factors that shape the potential for mass violence in the longer term and the forces that help unleash it in particular spaces and moments in time.
