Memory Politics and Transitional Justice

Dragovic Soso, J. (Ed), Subotic, J. (Ed), Petrova, T. (Ed)

The interdisciplinary fields of Memory Studies and Transitional Justice have largely developed in parallel to one another despite both focusing on efforts of societies to confront and (re-)appropriate their past. While scholars working on memory have come mostly from historical, literary, sociological, or anthropological traditions, transitional justice has attracted primarily scholarship from political science and the law. This series bridges this divide: it promotes work that combines a deep understanding of the contexts that have allowed for injustice to occur with an analysis of how legacies of such injustice in political and historical memory influence contemporary projects of redress, acknowledgment, or new cycles of denial. The titles in the series are of interest not only to academics and students but also practitioners in the related fields. The Memory Politics and Transitional Justice series promotes critical dialogue among different theoretical and methodological approaches and among scholarship on different regions. The editors welcome submissions from a variety of disciplines – including political science, history, sociology, anthropology, and cultural studies – that confront critical questions at the intersection of memory politics and transitional justice in national, comparative, and global perspective.  Memory Politics and Transitional Justice Book Series (Palgrave) Co-editors: Jasna Dragovic-Soso (Goldsmiths, University of London), Jelena Subotic (Georgia State University), Tsveta Petrova (Columbia University)   Editorial Board: Paige Arthur, New York University Center on International Cooperation   Alejandro Baer, University of Minnesota   Orli Fridman, Singidunum University Belgrade   Carol Gluck, Columbia University   Katherine Hite, Vassar College   Alexander Karn, Colgate University    Jan Kubik, Rutgers University and School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University College London   Bronwyn Leebaw, University of California, Riverside   Jan-Werner Mueller, Princeton University   Jeffrey Olick, University of Virginia   Kathy Powers, University of New Mexico   Joanna Quinn, Western University   Jeremy Sarkin, University of South Africa   Chandra Sriram, University of East London   Leslie Vinjamuri, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London    Sarah Wagner, George Washington University
