Opportunities and Announcements

This page provides information on opportunities and other announcements in the area of historical dialogue, historical and transitional justice, and public and social memory. It is regularly updated.


Invitation to Participate in the Mapping Historical Dialogue Project
The Institute for the Study of Human Rights (ISHR) at Columbia University invites you, as an expert in your field, to participate in the development of the Mapping Historical Dialogue Project (MHDP). The goal of the MHDP is to establish an online interactive geographical map that addresses mechanisms of contested memory in post conflict countries. The mapping process will document projects addressing the memory of historical violence. Building on a crowdsourcing model, the project will rely on incremental contributions to connect a diverse network of individuals who often do not have access or knowledge of one another’s work. The project is open access, and its scholarship and resources and will be available to a wide community of users. More information about the map can be found here. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us at mapping.historical.dialogue@gmail.com.

Request for information about best practices in the field of historical dialogue
Please send us success stories and examples of historical dialogue that you know about or you’ve conducted or carried out that involve historical dialogue as a tool in conflict resolution or post-conflict education. Topics can be, but are not limited to, categories such as:  historical commissions; addressing national trauma in memory; inclusion of historical acknowledgement in conflict resolution agreements; education and textbooks; museums. Please do NOT send activities that are framed entirely in a judicial context. We look forward to hearing from you at dialogues@columbia.edu.

Database of Researchers in Historical Dialogue, Transitional Justice and Memory
We are currently updating the database of researchers on our website (see http://historicaldialogues.org/affiliates/database-of-researchers/). The database lists researchers who working on issues of historical dialogue, historical and transitional justice, and public and social memory and have published at least one substantial article in an international refereed journal. If you would like to be included in that database, or if you would like to update your details, please send an email to dialogues@columbia.edu.

Archive on the Legacy of Conflict in South Asia
The Institute for the Study of Human Rights is pleased to announce the development of the Archive on the Legacy of Conflict in South Asia. In partnership with Columbia University Libraries/Information Services (CUL/IS)’s Center for Human Rights Documentation & Research (CHRDR) and the Armed Conflict Resolution and People’s Rights Project (ACRes), ISHR will aid in the preservation of unique historical documentation of gross human rights violations and conflict in South Asia. This pilot project aims to locate materials that are not currently being collected and preserved by libraries and archives or are at risk of disappearing.
