About the event:

Refusing to testify during the trials of Nazi collaborators of the Vichy regime, French historian Henry Rousso claimed that the proceedings were an exercise in the "religion of memory." What does this mean, and what are the possible implications for the relationships among religion, other genocides, and history?

About the speaker:

Dr. Kate E. Temoney is an Assistant Professor of Religion in the Department of Religion at Montclair State University. Her most recent publication is “The Religion/Genocide Nexus, Sexual Violence, and the Future of Genocide Studies” in Genocide Studies and Prevention: An International Journal (November 2016).
