St. Lawrence University
Fellowship Description: 

Professor Joe Kling (Government) will use this occasion to build upon a course he has taught examining memoir, autobiography, and other forms of narrative, as means employed by survivors of human rights brutality to engage the past. This expansion will continue to make use of personal narrative, but will expand to include collective practices such as truth commissions, judicial prosecutions of perpetrators of atrocities, and the establishment of human rights memorials and museums, as ways to recall and deal with national episodes of past violence. For the fellowship, Kling will work with LIT to develop a project website to be used by students as they the practices of remembrance.
