Bartosz Korzeniewski Rituals of Atonement, Changes in Valorisation of Violence and the Paradoxes of Multiculturalism The essay addresses changes in attitudes to violence in postmodern societies. Violence is approached along Foucauldian lines, yet at the same time placed within its contemporary, i.e. multicultural context. It is related to (individual and especially communal) phenomena of grief, memory, commemoration, atonement and reparation. The author sets out to capture trajectories of change in the social rites and as material for analysis looks at the complex situations arising, on the one hand, from public rites of atonement in the post-war Polish-German­Jewish relations (in the post-Holocaust context), and one the other, various routes of escape from the burden of guilty past. The dialectics and various paradoxes arising from these tensions are treated from the perspective of Slavoj ZiIek's views on politics in the era of multiculturalism.
