 Dear Colleagues:

Welcome to the ninth issue of the Dialogues on Historical Justice and Memory Network News (formerly Historical Justice and Memory Research Network News). The Network, which operates from www.historicaldialogues.org, provides information and resources for scholars and activists working on issues of historical justice and social and public memory to encourage innovative interdisciplinary, transnational, and comparative research.

The Dialogues on Historical Justice and Memory Network is a joint initiative of the Historical Justice and Memory Research Network (HJMRN), housed at the Swinburne Institute for Social Research, Swinburne University of Technology, in Melbourne, and Columbia University’s Alliance for Historical Dialogue and Accountability (AHDA), at the Institute for the Study of Human Rights (ISHR) in New York. It draws on an international team of collaborators and affiliates.

We draw your attention to our latest book reviews, including:

Read these and other reviews on our website.

If you have any information about calls for papers, new publications, forthcoming conferences, or jobs that could be publicized in future newsletters or via the Dialogues website, please email us at dialogues@columbia.edu.
