AbstractThe papers of this volume represent the intense and intellectually hectic activities which took place during the seventh research theme of the GEXcel during the autumn 2010 in Linköping, Getting Rid of Violence; TRANSdisciplinary, TRANSnational and TRANSformative Feminist Dialogues on Embodiment, Emotions and Ethics. In short, the theme was called The Violence Theme 7. All the authors were GEXcel scholars for various periods of time between October and December 2010, working with their research projects at Tema Genus, Linköping University. All scholars also participated in the Conference arranged within the theme in Linköping on 12th–14th October 2010: Violences and Silences: Shaming, Blaming – and Intervening (see Appendix B for program). This conference gathered 35 participants from all over the world who during three intensive days exchanged knowledge. So many papers were submitted after the conference for the proceedings that those have appeared in a special Work in Progress report, volume XII. Many of the chapters in the volume were presented at the seminars which were held regularly during the theme period (see Appendix A for program). This volume is literally a “Work in Progress” report, meaning that some of the texts are not preliminary as to intellectual content but will in future be elaborated more before they are finally published. Some minor editorial comments and changes have been exchanged between the authors and the editors, and the content of the chapters are thus the authors’ own responsibility. Only the texts from non-native English speaking authors have gone through a formal language check by a native English-speaking editor. We would like to thank Berit Starkman, Björn Pernrud and Ulrica Engdahl for all their efforts in the practical arrangements for the theme and the scholars, Liz Sourbut for English language revision of the manuscripts, Tomas Hägg for excellent work with the printing, Mette Bryld for invaluable advice on applicants for GEXcel, and Nina Lykke for her support as GEXcel Director.
