The organizers invite scholars and activists working on issues related to racial reconciliation, transitional justice, historical memory, regimes of redress, and the rule of law to participate in a two-day conference focused on these themes. The conference will be both transnational and interdisciplinary in scope. Interdisciplinary synergies will be created through the inclusion of experts from regions that have experienced racial and ethnic oppression and are in the process of achieving (or have successfully achieved) reconciliation through the establishment of the rule of law, norms of redress, and cultures of remembrance.
The two-day conference will consist of four to six panels based on submitted proposals, as well as at least one keynote address and one plenary session composed by the organizers. We encourage those who are interested in presenting a paper or organizing a panel to submit paper abstracts to the organizers no later than October 6, 2017.
Submitted proposals should contain “Redress Conference” in the subject line and should be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send all inquiries about the conference to Robert Westley’s assistant, Andrea Brigalia, at email@example.com.
