Sources of Violence

Sources de la violence
Edited by Élodie Apard and Cyrielle Maingraud-Martinaud

This special issue contributes to the debates on how to relate to violence in the social sciences and humanities, particularly on the African continent. Violence is a research object with significant emotional, partisan, and ideological power and its study requires a specific questioning about access to fieldwork, ethnographic immersion, the nature of field materials and their conditions of collect. The contributions gathered here focus on varied empirical materials used both as the starting point and basis for the analysis. Through various case studies, they all illustrate the value of making a methodological detour through sources and materials, as well as highlight the multiple ways through which these sources and materials can be produced.
