UNED Summer Courses: Anthropology before the memory of Spanish post-war violence

Anthropology before the memory of Spanish post-war violence 

From June, 25th 2018 to June, 27th 2018

UNED Summer Courses.

 

The course tries to reflect on the logic of violence in different contexts, although paying special attention to the expressions and representations of post-war Spanish violence of the 40s of the 20th century. An important part of the course is devoted to studying the case of post-war violence in the province of Ciudad Real, where a group of researchers from the UNED has been investigating for several years in the framework of several projects. The analysis is presented from an interdisciplinary perspective and it is intended to give voice not only to researchers of different specialties but also to those who have suffered this violence.

This international conference invites some of the leading international specialists in the analysis of mass grave exhumations as human rights tools. Mass grave exhumations linked to human right violations, which already started in the mid-eighties, have become increasingly important worldwide in the 21st-century. Gradually, they have become an increasingly prestigious phenomenon for truth, justice and reparation of victims of the outmost importance, as they are radically transforming the ways in which societies deal with the traumatic past, including the consolidation of forensic science as a privileged technique and methodology for interpreting the past –a phenomenon known in social sciences as the forensic turn. The purpose of this conference is to critically analyse, in a comparative fashion, different processes of mass grave exhumations in various parts of the world, including Russia, Timor, Central African Republic, the Netherlands, Germany, the US, Vietnam, Poland, Peru, Colombia, Mexico and Argentina, as well as the more specific cases of Spain and the Basque Country. Thematically, the conference includes from Civil War mass grave exhumations in Spain to the Soviet gulags, the identification of human remains recovered in the twin tower’s rubble, the search for US MIAs, the case of the Mexican searchers, post-war plundering in Holocaust mass graves, the cultural and political elaboration of the disappeared, and the religious aspects of exhumations, among others. In order to engage the comparative study of mass grave exhumations in different historical, cultural and political contexts, the conference includes scholars from different disciplines: forensic doctors, social anthropologists, lawyers, political scientists, sociologists, archaeologists, historians and literary critics. The conference also includes a monographic panel with representatives of Spain’s main memorial institutions.

Objectives
Foster the formal and informal exchange and debate of the participants in the conference with world experts on this topic and introduce the participants to:

the most contemporary and up-to-date trends in the critical analysis of mass grave exhumations linked to human rights violations in a comparative and interdisciplinary environment.
some of the most relevant cases of such exhumations taking place in different parts of the world, as well as their specific contexts and the potential controversies around them.
Present with an updated panorama on the memory politics linked to mass grave exhumations and historical memory of the Civil War in Spain
