Dr. Max Bergholz's book Violence as a Generative Force: Identity, Notionalism, and Memory in a Balkan Community has recently been awarded the Laura Shannon Prize in Contemporary European Studies. Bergholz confronts the 'unconfortable truths' that begin to explain behaviour while challenging widely-held beliefs about the link between nationalism and violence.
During the award ceremony, Bergholz presented a lecture entitled "Telling Histories of Violence Without Borders." You can view the lecture below.
