The Politics of Culture as Testimony

Activity: Academic and Industrial eventsNetworking event


Third workshop of AHRC network "Culture and its Uses as Testimony", hosted at and organised in collaboration with the University of Nottingham. The purpose of the workshop was to promote cross-disciplinary and cross-sector dialogue focused on three key questions: How are cultural forms of testimony used and misused for political goals in the present? How is culture as testimony incorporated into processes of transitional justice carried out at a political level (e.g., truth and parliamentary commissions in South Africa, Romania or German)? What status does cultural testimony have before the Law and what is its potential to feature in and enrich legal proceedings?
