Workshop – The exhumation of mass graves in the twenty-first century

13_09_26-27

On the 26-27 September the Centre Georges Chevrier organised the workshop ‘The exhumation of mass graves in the twenty-first century: practices and social customs’. The event is part of a research project exploring the different social issues and practices brought by the recent exhumations of abused bodies discovered in mass graves across various temporal and spatial contexts. The workshop will compare the approaches of archaeologists, anthropologists and historians who preside over excavation sites for openings pits and processing data, while intending to grow a dialogue between these disciplines to reflect on the memory issues these practices raise.
