As part of LCC’s Research Fortnight, this symposium will explore the visual staging of War Crimes Tribunals from Nuremburg to the ICTY. The main presentation will be by photographer Armin Smailovic, who will talk about his ‘Testimony Portraits’ of witnesses giving evidence at the ICTY and his Sounds of Silence project that deals with female survivors of wartime rape in Bosnia Herzegovinia. Max Houghton of LCC will also talk about her research on the embodied nature of testimony to war crimes tribunals from Nuremburg to Rwanda, whilst Professor James Gow of the War studies department at King’s college will discuss the theme of Pictures of Peace and Justice.
