Duration   9h

Research on The 1994 Genocide Against the Tutsi in Rwanda has contributed to the development of the field of genocide studies, but has also inspired controversy and adversarial claims. As with other cases of genocide, questions of denial have shaped the scholarly discourse and influenced what counts as legitimate narratives. The role of the Rwandan Patriotic Front, both within the country and across diaspora groups, as well as the impact of Rwandan foreign policy and practice in neighboring Great Lakes countries have introduced political considerations that contribute to the debate. Workshop participants ask who is telling Rwanda’s story, they pose crucial questions about representation in scholarship; they are interested in Rwanda’s long societal past prior to colonial interventions as well as its future. The panels will discuss the following themes: human and natural social worlds; society and policy after genocide; actors, violence and survival; and, showing and ordering memory.
