The Range and Function of Testimony in Cultural Forms

Activity: Academic and Industrial eventsNetworking event


First workshop of the AHRC network "Culture and its Uses as Testimony". The purpose of the event was to promote interdisciplinary and cross-sector dialogue around three key questions: Why do individuals turn to culture in order to tell their stories? What can the writing of testimonial literature, the making of a documentary film, or bringing historical witnesses on stage do that other forms of bearing witness cannot? How does this testimony relate to concepts of reconciliation and justice at an individual and societal level?
