The English episode of Memory Cultures in Dialogue podcast is out
How and why does wartime violence against civilians occur in the communities that have lived together in peace for a long time? Why does this happen in some local-level communities and not in others? How does memory of the past waves of violence matter in this context? In our first episode in English, we are discussing these questions on the examples of armed conflicts in Croatia, Uganda and Guatemala. Our guest is Mila Dragojević, Associate Professor in Politics at the University of South, Sewanee and the author of Amoral Communities: Collective Crimes in Time of War.
The episode is available on the podcast website: https://www.kulturesecanja.org/en/podcast/episode-3-amoral-communities/
