compiles a wide selection of essays, all but two of them
original to this book, written by leading scholars and
activists in the field of genocide studies. These authors
pay eloquent tribute to the works of art and media that
influenced their engagement with genocide and crimes against
humanity. The subjects include books and stories, films,
songs, drawings, documents, monuments, sculptures, personal
testimonies, and even a Lego set.
In an accessible and often deeply personal way, contributors
explore their own relationships with the works in question.
Edited by Adam Jones, recently selected one of "Fifty
Key Thinkers” in Holocaust and genocide studies,
Evoking Genocide makes an important contribution to
the study of the art and culture of mass atrocity.
