Evils of a Global Past? Tensions between local practices and global politics in genocide commemoration

This project aims to analyze the "multi-­directional effects" (Rothberg) which globalized discourses and represen­tations of historical genocides render for current memory practices and politics, on local levels and in foreign relations. Case studies analyze in detail conflictual cases (e.g., the Armenians 1915/16, the Herero and Nama 1904-08) and the ways they impact domestic peace as well as international relations.
