Workshop: Transitional Justice in the United States
Conference: June 14, 2022; Washington University, St. Louis
The Program in American Culture Studies at Washington University in St. Louis invites submissions for a daylong manuscript workshop for early career scholars working on topics related to transitional justice in the United States. The workshop will bring together a cohort of scholars to give and receive feedback on their article- or chapter-length works in progress. We will be joined by transitional justice scholars Raff Donelson (Penn State Dickinson Law) and Colleen Murphy (University of Illinois Urbana–Champaign), who will also offer comments on participants’ work.
We are excited to be hosting this workshop on an important and practically relevant topic that has drawn increasing scholarly interest in recent years. This event is made possible by support from the Social Science Research Council’s Religion, Spirituality, and Democratic Renewal Fellowship, with funds provided by the Fetzer Institute. Please see the attached call for papers, and feel free to forward to others in your scholarly networks who may be interested in participating.
