Welcome to the organization of concerned scholars and activists devoted to discerning and influencing the legacies of large-scale violence. We hope that the Justice After Atrocity Network will amplify our collective voices in search of a just and fair society.
The Network emerged from a conference we organized in 2017 dealing with the aftermath of historical and contemporary injustice. We felt then, and even more so now, that the proliferation of large-scale violence and its unstable aftermaths are urgent matters requiring the scrutiny and commitment of observers and activists.
Like other networks, we seek to plan, participate, and promote gatherings, scholarship, and professional appointments relating to all areas of justice. For us, that has meant conferences, panel presentations, a monthly newsletter, and the commitment of the MAHGS program at Kean University. As we continue to expand and grow in other areas, we hope this group will serve as a counterforce that will restore faith in the power of justice in the aftermath of atrocity.
