Date: Thursday March 22nd, 2012
Time: 9:00AM
Venue: Monument National, 1182 St-Laurent, H2X 2S5

The “Beyond Testimony and Trauma” conference invites participants to reflect on the many ways that oral historians, artists, new media practitioners, educators, and survivors themselves engage with these life stories. It also seeks to explore collaborative projects in which survivors become partners and not simply historical sources or objects of study. What are the rightful claims of a more holistic and/or collaborative approach to survivors’ retelling? What are the political and ethical implications of different ways of engaging survivors’ accounts?

“Beyond Testimony and Trauma: Why We Are Here”


Keynote presentation by Henry Greenspan as part of the “Beyond Testimony and Trauma” conference

Through a series of potentially provocative (but hopefully revealing) anecdotes, this talk will suggest why we need to move beyond conventional concepts of testimony and trauma—both in rhetoric and in associated practice.  Drawing from some of this conference’s proposals, it will also suggest ways we already have.

Language: English and French

BUDRUS - A documentary presentation and dialogue with Just Vision

A co-presentation with the Montréal Life Stories Project, Going Public, and Cinema Politica.

Ayed Morrar, an unlikely community organizer, unites Palestinians from all political factions and Israelis to save his village from destruction by Israel’s Separation Barrier. Victory seems improbable until his 15-year-old daughter, Iltezam, launches a women’s contingent that quickly moves to the front lines. In an action-filled documentary, BUDRUS shines a light on people who choose nonviolence to confront a threat virtually unknown to the world. Producer Ronit Avni (formerly of WITNESS, director of Encounter Point) will be present following the screening to answer questions and discuss the work of her organization, Just Vision.

A selection of interviews conducted as part of the project will be planned and the public will then be invited to respond to the various issues raised in the interviews.

EARLY PREVENTION AND PUBLIC POLICY: How can the available tools be used?

Workshop co-sponsored by the Montréal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies and the Montréal Life Stories Project

Current debates about possible crimes against humanity in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Sudan and Syria raise the question of historical precedents for early and effective external engagement that could have or actually did turn key actors away from committing mass atrocities. This workshop will examine what lessons we can learn from the cases of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust, the fall of the apartheid government in South Africa, the Rwandan Genocide, British intervention against warlords in Sierra Leone and the post-election killings in Kenya to inform public policy today.

With Frank Chalk, Norman Ingram, Kyle Matthews and Alexandra Buskie

Explorations of Shadows and Echoes: Lecture-Performance by Sandeep Bhagwati

In his lecture, interspersed with music, gestures and moving images, Sandeep Bhagwati will tell the strange story of a creative process about displacement that itself has been repeatedly displaced, shadowed and echoed into several artistic languages – what began as a music project mutated into a gestural theatre piece, and finally the installation we can currently see at the BAnQ. His talk will touch on his feelings of being trapped in a Hollywood movie when he auditioned young Montréal actors for a show, but also of the ways the "tyranny of intimacy" we all see in the media around us can cloud important political and social issues - issues he thinks art must explore.

LE PETIT COIN INTACT

part I of II

by Lisa Ndejuru, artist in residence 2011-2012

I have been struggling for decades with what it means to be Rwandan-Canadian-- what Rwanda's tortured narrative of colonialism, war, genocide, dislocation and poverty has meant and could mean for my family, my community, my country, my world. I have some ideas. But before I can ask others to move towards the understanding I long for, I must grab the talking stick, step into the story circle and explore those risks myself. This is a one-woman dramatic reflection about holding on tightly to the things worth holding on to and shedding everything else.

Part II in September (TBA), with Lisa Ndejuru and Catherine Dajczman

Date: 21 mars 2012
Time: 7:30pm

On Tour with Sensitive Stories

Keynote presentation by Elizabeth Miller and Michele Luchs as part of the “Beyond Testimony and Trauma” conference

The goal of Mapping Memories, a collaborative multi-media project for refugee youth, was to explore how media tools like digital cartography, soundscapes, and digital storytelling could be used to solicit powerful stories while empowering participants in the process. The explosion of digital mapping tools presented new opportunities to expand participatory media practices and engage new audiences.

In this presentation we will share our challenges and insights gleaned through taking these stories public to address one of the leading questions of the conference - How might life stories be ethically used in human rights advocacy and in the classroom?

Surviving mass violence: Is there an obligation to remember and share?

 

Discussion co-sponsored by the Cambodian Working Group and the University of the Streets Café
An increasing number of initiatives aim to give voice to those affected by war, genocide, and other human rights violations. The resulting stories often include violence, suffering, brutality, and exile but also, hope, renewal, and resilience. For some individuals, the duty to remember motivates their storytelling. Others, however, hesitate or refuse to share their painful memories. In this context, what is the role of speech and of silence? Is speech necessarily a part of the healing process? Is silence always a refusal to share one’s memories?

When Odette, a Rwandan-Canadian film maker, goes to Turkey to carry out her research, she befriends Sahana, a respected Muslim woman in her nineties.
