Eren Ercan [1]

202 281

This study analyzes the historical context of the phenomenon of violence and the structure of the transformations it undergoes; particularly the transformation that unfolded with the transition from modernity to postmodernity. Hannibal is a series with intense scenes of bodily violence, and has a voting rate of 8.6 on IMDB with the votes of over a hundred thousand viewers. This descriptive study focuses on two aspects; i) discovering what kind of an ideological and historical dimension violence has and how this ideology is represented and transformed on the TV screen with postmodernity through the Hannibal series, ii) the exploration and theoretical discussion of TV violence through the transformation that has occured in how the body is approached. The most significant finding of the study is the coherent relationship between the body, violence and ideology
