(p.145) 7 Bodies of cyberwar: Violence and knowledge beyond corporeality
Experiences in Researching Conflict and Violence

Fabio Cristiano

Policy Press

This chapter explores how violence unfolds in the context of cyberwar. It does so through a theoretical analysis of understanding the body that transcends corporeality. It reflects on the implications this entails for the production of knowledge on this phenomenon. This chapter suggests rethinking cyberwar in view of violence as an experience that discloses through the interplay between embodied proximity and distance, rather than corporeality. Drawing on the author’s research experience on Palestinian cyberwar, an understanding of violence is reconciled with its implications for the study of war in cyberspace, at often times considered as a disembodied, and thus non-violent, warscape.

Keywords:   corporeality, cyberwar, cyborg, embodiment, Palestine, proximity
