03 Sep Podcast: Microdynamics of late colonial violence
Anne van Mourik talks in the NIOD Rewind Podcast on War & Violence with Roel Frakking on the term ‘extreme violence’ and the importance of local dynamics in researching decolonisation conflict.
Roel is a postdoc researcher at KITLV where he is researching the regional dynamics of the Indonesian war against Dutch recolonisation (1945-1950). His latest publication, co-authored with Professor Martin Thomas (Exeter), deals with the micro-dynamics of violence during decolonization conflicts in Southeast Asia and Africa after 1945.
The NIOD REWIND podcast on War & Violence presents interviews with scholars on the history and study of mass violence, war and genocide.
