Abstract

Violence and interracial intimacy were intertwined at all levels of the settlercolonial encounter and, in equal measures, were fundamental to theshaping of modern settler states. The development of settler colonial cultureswas deeply dependent upon the everyday proximity of Indigenousand settler workers, and yet we know surprisingly little of how the intimaciesarising from that proximity were intrinsically connected to forms ofcolonial violence. Inspired by new insights derived from feminist and postcolonialperspectives, this collection sets out to interrogate the nexusbetween violence and intimacy and to explore their intermixed place in theformation of settler colonial societies around the Pacific Rim. In particular,it charts the precarious intimacies of cross-cultural violence in various Pacific Rim settler economies, and the ways that they both enabled multipleforms of Indigenous dispossession and gave rise to new and complexsocial relations.
