Stereotypes are dangerous, especially when they are used by demagogues. Slogans, which remind the historian of darker times in human history, however, reappear again in a growing number. As companions of the rise of right wing forces in Europe they make up ground in more and more regions and gain momentum in the political debate. It consequently seems to be more than important to focus on and closer analyze the interrelationship between stereo­types and violence in modern societies.

The fourth volume of Global Humanities is trying to achieve such a broader analysis and will provide reading in the fields of history, political science, gender and media studies. The authors are going to show and emphasize in which ways the two above named factors are interacting with each other and influencing the popular opinion in modern nation states. Topics that will be covered include Anti-Italian riots in Zurich at the end of the 19th century, a discussion of the interrelationship of racism and violence in Germany since the 1980s, and an analysis of gender based violence in Serbia. In addition, the persistence of stereotypes in entertainment will be closely studied by taking a look on Sinti and Roma depictions in current European films.

With contributions by Oliver Betts, Fabian Braendle, Andrew Fuyarchuk, Biba Hadziavdic, Hilde Hoffmann, Barbara Manthe, Benjamin Nickl, Bojan Perovic, Sylvia Sadzinski and Victoria Shmidt.
