Revenge Narratives and Violence in Cinema

Supervisors

Summary

A common framework for representations of violence in multiple forms of media is that of the revenge narrative, in which acts of violence provide a form of justice or punishment for wrongdoing. This project will explore connections between cinematic violence and revenge narratives, examining how the revenge narrative framework reflects societal attitudes towards and conceptualisations of violence.
