genderjusticememory.com is the website of an AHRC/Global Challenges Research Fund Network Project led by Jelke Boesten at King’s College London with Helen Scanlon at the University of Cape Town. The project explores ways in which post-conflict symbolic reparations –recognition of harms done through, for example, memorials, museums, or arts- can contribute to debating and unsettling harmful gender norms that may have contributed to specifically gendered harms in conflict. The project engages academics, artists, and curators, as well as policy makers and civil society organisations working on transitional justice and for women’s rights in thinking about art as a tool for social change.

The project events focus on debating, performing and curating gender justice and memory.
