“After Genocide: Memory and Reconciliation in Rwanda” with Dr. Nicole Fox


On Tuesday, April 2, the Strauss Center for International Security and Law hosts Dr. Nicole Fox, Associate Professor in California State University Sacramento’s Criminal Justice Division, for a discussion of her book, “After Genocide: Memory and Reconciliation in Rwanda.” This talk will be moderated by Ambassador (Ret.) Larry André, Distinguished Diplomat in Residence at the LBJ School of Public Affairs, and Dr. Maro Youssef, State Fragility Program Fellow at the Strauss Center.

In After Genocide, Nicole Fox investigates the ways memorials can shape the experiences of survivors decades after mass violence has ended. She examines how memorializations can both heal and hurt, especially when they fail to represent all genders, ethnicities, and classes of those afflicted. Drawing on extensive interviews with Rwandans, Fox reveals their relationships to these spaces and uncovers those voices silenced by the dominant narrative—arguing that the erasure of such stories is an act of violence itself. The book probes the ongoing question of how to fit survivors in to the dominant narrative of healing and importantly demonstrates how memorials can shape possibilities for growth, national cohesion, reconciliation, and hope for the future.
