This image serves as the main image for our laboratory, the Violence & Conflict Research Laboratory (VCL). The VCL at the University of Massachusetts Amherst provides the infrastructural and analytical support for the creation of a cohort of students working on issues of violence in both its biological and cultural manifestations. Through the lenses of bioarchaeology and cultural, linguistic, and forensic anthropology, it facilitates research and teaching development with collaborators within the University of Massachusetts Amherst community and worldwide. Additionally, the VCL provides editorial and publication opportunities through the open-source, peer-reviewed academic journal, Landscapes of Violence.
