Aftershocks: Legacies of Conflict

Aftershocks: Legacies of Conflict brought together scholars, activists, performance artists and journalists to explore some of the same intersections of violence, the colonial past, memory, and trauma invoked by Black Watch, the award-winning play presented by Texas Performing Arts in conjunction with the conference, as well as the unique role that performance might play in the analysis. It considered these issues in a variety of geographic spaces and places, with a special emphasis on the legal and political regimes that are meant to preserve memory while also transitioning into post-conflict.


Co-sponsored by Texas Performing Arts, the Humanities Institute, the Center for Women's and Gender Studies, UT Libraries, the South Asia Institute, the Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies, Performance as Public Practice, British Studies, and, from St. Edward's University, the Kozmetsky Center of Excellence in Global Finance
