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.

Parution de l’ouvrage de Francisco Ferrandiz “Contemporary Ethnographies: Moorings, Methods, and Keys for the Future” (avril 2020)

Le prochain ouvrage de Francisco Ferrandiz est disponible en pré-commande sur le site des éditions Routledge où vous trouverez également une présentation de la table des matières: https://www.routledge.com/Contemporary-Ethnographies-Moorings-Methods-and-Keys-for-the-Future/Ferrandiz/p/book/9780367483838?utm_source=crcpress.com&utm_medium=referral

Contemporary Ethnographies is a call to use ethnography in imaginative ways, adjusting to rapidly evolving social circumstances. It is based on a reflexive and theoretically grounded exploration of the author’s two main research projects – the study of the spiritist possession cult of María Lionza in Venezuela, and the analysis of the contemporary exhumation of Civil War (1936–1939) mass graves in contemporary Spain. Ferrándiz critically reviews the labyrinthine and continuous transforming nature of ethnographic engagement. He defends both the need for methodological rigour and the astounding flexibility of ethnography to adjust in creative ways to shifting realities in a dynamic world – a world in which research scenarios multiply, social actors are on the move (physically or digitally), acts of violence proliferate, new technologies are transforming the experience and perception of human life, and the demand, production, circulation and consumption of knowledge is greatly diversified, overshadowing former well established and more hierarchical patterns of diffusion. The book is conceived of as a historically grounded open debate, providing as many certainties as moments of unpredictability and unresolved dilemmas. It is valuable reading for students and scholars interested in ethnographic methods and anthropological theory.”
