Dialogues on Historical Justice and Memory Network News Newsletter No. 7

Dear Colleagues:

Welcome to the seventh 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:
