Calls now open, JHI Undergraduate and Graduate Fellowships, 2017-2018
The Jackman Humanities Institute is pleased to announce that we will be accepting applications for fellowships in the 2017-2018 year on the theme of
Indelible Violence: Shame, Reconciliation, and the Work of Apology
Performances of reconciliation and apology attempt to erase violence that is arguably indelible. What ideological and therapeutic work does reconciliation do, under whose authority, for whose benefit, and with what limits? What would it mean to acknowledge the role of shame? How might the work of truth and reconciliation commissions be compared to other ways of shifting relations from violence and violation to co-existence? How does the work of apology stabilize social identities, conditions, and relations and how do indelible traces of violence work for and against those conditions, identities and relations?
