Life writing and human rights: Genres of Testimony

Speakers: Eva Hoffman, Vesna Goldsworthy, Margaretta Jolly, Sidonie Smith, Julia Watson, Patricia Hampl and others

The conference will examine the processes involved in the shaping of genres of testimony, from the collection of eyewitness accounts of atrocities to the archiving of propaganda and ephemera from scenes of human rights abuse, media coverage before, during and after an event, as well as creative post-conflict reflections voiced in memoirs, poetry, psychoanalytic narratives, the dramatic and visual arts.
