Joe Kling

Professor of Government

Fellowship Description: 

Professor Joe Kling (Government) used this occasion to build upon a course he taught examining memoir, autobiography, and other forms of narrative, as means employed by survivors of human rights brutality to engage the past. This expansion continued to make use of personal narrative, but expanded 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.
