Palgrave Series on Transitional Justice and Memory Politics
Edited by Jasna Dragovic Soso, Jelena Subotic, and Tsveta Petrova
The interdisciplinary fields of Memory Studies and Transitional Justice have largely developed in parallel to one another despite both focusing on efforts of societies to confront and (re-)appropriate their past. While scholars working on memory have come mostly from historical, literary, sociological, or anthropological traditions, transitional justice has attracted primarily scholarship from political science and the law. This series bridges this divide: it promotes work that combines a deep understanding of the contexts that have allowed for injustice to occur with an analysis of how legacies of such injustice in political and historical memory influence contemporary projects of redress, acknowledgment, or new cycles of denial. The titles in the series are of interest not only to academics and students but also practitioners in the related fields. The Memory Politics and Transitional Justice series promotes critical dialogue among different theoretical and methodological approaches and among scholarship on different regions. The editors welcome submissions from a variety of disciplines – including political science, history, sociology, anthropology, and cultural studies – that confront critical questions at the intersection of memory politics and transitional justice in national, comparative, and global perspective.

Entre sus múltiples actividades y propuestas, desarrolla una línea de trabajo que apunta a enriquecer la memoria visual del período del autoritarismo y la dictadura en Uruguay (1968-1985). En este marco, se han recuperado varios archivos fotográficos de la época y se generaron imágenes contemporáneas que evocan ese pasado. En esta sección del sitio web del Centro de Fotografía puede verse parte de ese trabajo, difundido a través de muestras fotográficas, publicaciones y audiovisuales.
