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.
