The Historical Justice and Memory Research Network brings together scholars and activists concerned with issues of historical justice and memory. This website provides information and resources to encourage interdisciplinary and comparative research on issues relating to memory, memorialisation and historicisation, and historical and transitional justice. The Network is housed at The Swinburne Institute for Social Research in Melbourne, Australia.
Over the past twenty-five years, studies of how injustice has been remembered and forgotten have largely occurred within the bounds of specific academic disciplines and national or local histories. This website is to facilitate interdisciplinary, transnational and comparative cross-fertilisation.
From 14 to 17 February 2012, the Swinburne Institute hosted the Network’s first Historical Justice and Memory conference. For more information, please visit: http://www.historicaljusticeandmemoryconference.net/
