Om boken från förlagets hemsida:

This book focuses on ethical, aesthetic and scholarly dimensions of how genocide-related works of art, documentary films, poetry and performance, museums and monuments, music, dance, image, law, memory narratives, spiritual bonds, and ruins translate and take place as translations of acts of genocide. It shows how genocide-related modes of representation are rather acts of translation that, displace and produce memory and acts of remembrance of genocidal violence as inheritance of the past in a future present. Thus, the possibility of representation is examined in light of what remains in the aftermath, where the past and the future are inseparable companions, and the idea of the untranslatability of acts of genocide. By opening up the past and lived experiences of genocidal violence as and through multiple acts of translation that mark heterogeneous turns toward the future, this volume will be of interest to all scholars and students of memory and genocide studies, transitional justice, sociology, psychology, and social anthropology.
