After Genocide

fox-genocideHow can any population move on from the experience of genocide? How can such events be memorialized in a way that is productive and even healing for survivors? The Center for Human Rights and International Justice will host a talk by Nicole Fox who took up such questions in her new book After Genocide: Memory and Reconciliation in Rwanda (University of Wisconsin Press). Fox’s talk will take place on April 7 at 12 noon in Campion Hall, room 139. Through extensive interviews with survivors’ decades after mass violence has ended, Fox reveals the relationship survivors have to memorial spaces and uncovers those voices silenced by the dominant narrative—arguing that the erasure of such stories is an act of violence itself. Fox is a professor of criminal justice at California State University Sacramento and serves on the United Nations Economic and Social Council. Register for the event at tinyurl.com/Fox0407.
