Panel 6 – « Collective reburial in post-genocide and mass-violence contexts: collectively reshaping mass death and its aftermath »

This panel is organized in the frame of the TRANSFUNERARY research program focusing on a comparative analysis of collective reburial and funerary practices currently occurring in Europe and Latin America, in post-mass violence contexts. In contemporary post-genocide or mass crime situations, exhumation is indeed used as an essential tool for transitional justice processes. In several countries concerned in the long run with mass exhumations (such as for example Bosnia, Spain, Cyprus, Argentina, Peru or Guatemala), this has led to numerous collective reburial that have so far received little attention as such. This program aims at enlightening the funerary rituals transformations or adaptation, but also the religious and political arrangements that lie beneath, and enable societies to deal with the difficult issue such as fragmented or absent bodies. Beside an interrogation upon funeral grammar and glossaries adaptability as well as upon forensics expertise impact, the program aims at questioning the reshaping of the relationships to the dead in post-mass violence contexts.
