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.

Prix du World Press Photo pour le projet de Daniele Volpe sur le génocide au Guatemala (avril 2020)

Le photographe Daniele Volpe est l’un des lauréats du “Long-term Project” Wolrd Press Photo Award pour l’année 2020. Sa série de photographies, que vous pouvez voir ici donne à voir les processus d’exhumations et de ré-inhumation dans la région Ixil au Guatemala. Les photographies s’inscrivent dans un projet de plusieurs années, qui montre les différentes étapes du travail d’anthropologie légiste en contexte de post-conflit et illustre notamment les moments de ré-enterrement collectif des victimes.
