On April 7th the world will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the genocide in Rwanda. The genocide itself claimed almost one million lives within 100 days.
The aftermath would see an additional one million individuals processed through the gacaca courts and future generations fundamentally altered.
A survey of the literature demonstrates that the analysis and examination of the Rwandan genocide has crossed multiple disciplines, but rarely do they come
together to share their insights. This small conference will offer an interdisciplinary forum in which we examine and discuss various facets of the Rwandan genocide, its aftermath, and its impact.
Rwanda 20 Years After: Memory, Justice, and Recovery in the Shadow of Genocide is a two-day international multidisciplinary conference, hosted by Weber State University in Ogden, UT. The conference,
held on March 28th and 29th will launch WSU’s Rwandan Commemoration Week in recognition of the 20th anniversary of the genocide. The conference will bring together experts in their field, with the
majority of presenters having conducted field research in Rwanda, in addition to being open to students, faculty, and community members (registration is required).
