Launched in January 2014, the histories of violence "Disposable Life" project interrogates the meaning of mass violence and human destruction in the 21st Century. Inviting critical reflections from renowned public intellectuals, this three year project will feature a series of monthly filmed reflections from an illustrious list of participants. The eighth contribution to the reflections series is provided by Professor Max Silverman who is renowned for his work on trauma, memory, race and violence. For Silverman, "disposable lives" does not refer to the killing of people.
