Conference Announcement: Historical Justice and Memory – An Interdisciplinary Conference, taking place in Melbourne, Australia from February 14-17 2012. Abstracts due June 3, 2011. For more information, see here.

This conference aims to bring together scholars working on historical justice and on memory. It is trying to promote conversations across disciplinary boundaries – for example, between historians and lawyers, anthropologists and philosophers, sociologists and cinema studies scholars, heritage scholars and psychologists, human geographers and political scientists – and across national boundaries: bringing together, say, a historian working on memories of the 1965 violence in Indonesia with a lawyer doing research on the South African truth commission, and an anthropologist doing fieldwork in Romania with somebody analysing novels written in post-Pinochet Chile.
