Conference: "Aftershocks: Legalities of Conflict"
Fri, February 18, 2011
This conference seeks to bring together scholars, activists, performance artists, and journalists to explore some of the same intersections of violence, the colonial past, memory, and trauma that Black Watch invokes, as well as the unique role that performance might play in the analysis. It will consider these issues in a variety of geographic spaces and places, with a special emphasis on the legal and political regimes that are meant to preserve memory while also transitioning into post-conflict. Participants will be asked to consider the extent to which they resonate with their own works—from various disciplines and mediums, and on conflicts in places as varied as Guatemala, South Africa, the Balkans and Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Israel and Palestine.
