Explaining Southern Violence, Sep 9, 6pm, Maxwell Library

Professor Kim Davies is scheduled to present “Explaining Southern Violence,” Tuesday, September 9, 2014 at 6 pm at the Maxwell Library at 1927 Lumpkin Rd in Augusta, next to Butler High School.

Much data indicate that the Southern region of the U.S. has more violence. As far back as 1880, scholars such as H.C. Redfield began noting and exploring the variations in violent behavior between the North and the South in the United States (Redfield 1880). Professor Kim Davies will share some of this data including recent data and then consider/present different possible explanations for the higher rates in the south. Much of the talk is based on Nisbet and Cohen’s 1996 book, Culture of Honor: The Psychology of Violence in the South. Temperature, slavery, poverty, and the culture of honor will be discussed.
