Abstract

This chapter concludes the case study by focussing in on the broad variety of ways in which violence manifests in the case-study school, DCX. Drawing on a large body of qualitative data collected during a period of immersive field research, the author analyses how multiple manifestations of violence can be seen to result from numerous enactments and impacts of violent epistemology at all levels—from the individual to the collective, institutional, structural, and global scales. The analysis presented in the previous chapters is drawn together to provide a detailed understanding of violence in the context of day-to-day life within the school. Examples are given of the wide range of ways in which violence manifests within the school, and the author discusses how these can be seen as resulting from, and contributing to self-perpetuating cycles of violent epistemology, and the non-conducive circumstances that such epistemology fosters.
