>After Genocide: Trauma, Memory, and Forgiving
>The impact of genocide reverberates long after the tragic event. The
>profound experience of trauma, both personal and collective, can manifest
>itself in a variety of ways, including
>its representations in literature and art. Although we usually focus on
>individual or national memory of the victim group, perpetrators and
>perpetrator nations often try to deal with genocide too. This may take the
>form of expressions of recognition, contrition, pleas for forgiveness, or
>various ways of reconstituting memory.
>We invite panel submissions that deal with these post-genocide topics from
>a feminist and/or socialist perspective.
>Our panel will be co-sponsored by the Society for Socialist Studies & the
>Canadian Sociology Anthropology Association (and possibly by the Canadian
>Women's Studies Association).
>The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 1 October 2002.
