Violence and interracial intimacy were intertwined at all levels of the settler colonial encounter and, in equal measures, were fundamental to the shaping of modern settler states. The development of settler colonial cultures was deeply dependent upon the everyday proximity of Indigenous and settler workers, and yet we know surprisingly little of how the intimacies arising from that proximity were intrinsically connected to forms of colonial violence. Inspired by new insights derived from feminist and post-colonial perspectives, this collection sets out to interrogate the nexus between violence and intimacy and to explore their intermixed place in the formation of settler colonial societies around the Pacific Rim.
