Corpses Project: 2nd Annual Conference

Corpses: Search and Identification in post-Genocide and Mass Violence Contexts. This second conference of the research project Corpses of mass violence and genocide aims to explore another severe manipulation of bodies after the killings: the search and identification of the remains. The organisers, who include Jean-Marc Dreyfus, are therefore calling for papers dealing with the search and recovery of bodies in the context of mass crimes. The conference will focus in particular on the twentieth century. Studies may deal with any geographical area and should focus on the methods and processes for identification, as well as the motivations and interests behind these pursuits, taking an instrumental perspective which promises to open up new avenues of research. The conference is to be held at the University of Manchester, UK, 9–11 September 2013. Further details.
