Corpses of mass violence and genocide

This Blog aims at presenting the research program Corpses of Mass Violence and Genocide. Bringing together perspectives of social anthropology, law and history, and raising the three main issues of destruction, research and identification, and restitution of human remains to society, this research programme directed by anthropologist Elisabeth Anstett (PI) and historian Jean-Marc Dreyfus, has enlighten how various social and cultural treatments of dead bodies simultaneously challenge common representations, legal practices and morality. Programme outputs have therefore open and strengthen the field of genocide studies by providing proper intellectual and theoretical tools for a better understanding of mass violence’s aftermaths in today societies. This research programme, which started in 2012 and ended in 2016, has been entirely financed through a Consolidator grant from the European Research Council, and has led since then to numerous publications.
