Project: “When times collide”: A meta-historical analysis of history and memory in post-war Guatemala.
01/10/13 – 30/09/17
Between 1960 and 1996, Guatemala was shattered by an internal armed conflict that resulted in the death of 200,000 people, including genocide against the indigenous Mayan population. By conducting ethnographic field research I investigate different ways of dealing with the conflict and analyze their political implications. I aim at testing time concepts empirically by introducing them in transitional justice.
