This chapter is intended to situate the rest of the book with a discussion of the materiality of narrative and the complexity of narrating violence within conflicts as well as the conflict resolution process. Thus, this framework sets the stage for the rest of the book by grounding the discussion of narrative and conflict on the issues that complicate both the pragmatics and politics of narrative dynamics in conflict processes. Illustrative examples will include narratives from the conflict in Somalia as well as narratives from a conflict in the US over immigration.

Keywords:   materiality, witnessing, narrative violence, state of exception, language of agency
