Based on case studies spanning time and geography from the Spanish to the Nigerian civil wars, to government repression in Argentina and genocidal policies in Guatemala and Rwanda and, finally, 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 publicly engage with traumatic memory work. The various essays offer a kaleidoscopic perspective of new approaches to show how such memory work contributes to transitional justice efforts, demonstrating the complexities of achieving justice and reconciliation through the open expression of shared memories of violence.
