Genderjusticememory.com is a platform for thinking about transformative gender justice in transitional societies led by Jelke Boesten at King’s College London and Helen Scanlon at the University of Cape Town. While designed as a research project based in academia, the platform aims to bridge scholarship and the arts for social change through networks and partnerships.
The first research project looks at commemoration, symbolic reparation and the arts (funded by the AHRC/GCRF Ref AH/P006248/1) by establishing a network of scholars, artists, curators and practitioners.
The second project looks at building inclusive histories in transition through symbolic reparations, memorial arts and gender-based violence in comparative perspective (funded by a Newton Mobility Grant via the British Academy Ref NMGR1180547).
A third project looks at veterans narratives of gender and violence through an oral history project (funded by a British Academy UK Challenges grant, start May 2019).
The next project is a collaborative cross-continental gender analysis of transitional justice and its feminist counter-narratives -bridging past, present and future.
