Spatial dis/orders and dynamics of violence in the Nazi-occupied Soviet Union (1941-1943)

Venue: K114

Date: Wed 29 May

Time: 4 p.m.


The paper focuses on the dynamics of violence in the Ukrainian-Russian border area, between Chernihiv and Brjansk, between 1941 and 1943. This region is characterized by the multiplicity of the violent actors involved: it was a stronghold of the Soviet partisan movement, the locus of emergence of the most structured Russian nationalist collaborationist force, while various German and Hungarian troops were in charge of its pacification. I propose to analyze the complex dynamics of violence that emerge from this multi-directional conflict through a spatial lens.
