Summary
Based on case studies spanning time and geography from the Spanish to the Nigerian civil wars, to government repression in Argentina, genocidal policies in Guatemala and Rwanda and on to forced population removal in Australia and Israel, this collection represents a focused attempt to come to grips with some of the strategies used to express traumatic memory work. Together, the essays constitute a kaleidoscope of new approaches to show how such performances of memory contribute to transitional justice efforts, demonstrating the complexities of striving for justice and reconciliation through the public expression of shared memories of violence.--
