Presenting: Harvesting the Future in Rwanda: Transitional Justice, moral extraction and the promise of the law

Natacha Nsabimana

Natacha Nsabimana is an assistant professor of Anthropology at the University of Chicago. Nsabimana is currently working on a book manuscript examining the everyday aftermath of violence in post-genocide Rwanda. This project focusses primarily on the ways in which the 1994 genocide against Tutsi occupies the spatial memory of the country’s landscape and the kinds of individual and national narratives such memory allows and disavows.

Discussant: Sindiso Mnisi Weeks (UMass-Boston)


A week in advance, the presenter’s paper will be circulated through the Harvard African Studies Workshop listserv. It is assumed that everyone has read the paper before the workshop.  After presentation and commentary, Workshop attendees are invited to engage in critique and discussion, under the moderation of the Workshop Chairs.
