The Social Work and Development Institute (SWOP) is hosting The Wits Seminar on Violence with different talks each month from now until November. The seminar incorporates various disciplines and research programmes. It aims to stimulate conversation between scholars, practitioners and the public, and focusses on the significance and meaning of violence; on theory and violence; and on the possibilities of violence reduction. The first talk will be presented by Prof. Dunbar Moodie, entitled Conflict, compromise and insurgent citizenship: Violence on the South African gold mines during the transition to democracy, 1988—1996. Moodie is the former head of the Sociology Department at Wits and currently the Lloyd Wright Professor in the Department of Anthropology and Sociology at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, New York.
