Looking to generate a collective reading list – covering events central to Soulographie, but also more broadly on trauma, genocide, art-as-it-addresses…

A very beginning:

The Writing of the Disaster – Maurice Blanchot: complete text.

Testimony, Shoshana Felman and Dori Laub, especially Chapters 2 and 3.

Rwanda: Death, Despair and Defiance – African Rights: Introduction.

The Moral Imagination – Lederach: Chaps 1, 7, 15.
Building Peace – Lederach: Chaps 1, 2, 6, 7.

Your thoughts?

 

Warmer today, but overcast. Less birdsong. Birdsong = “I would rather you be heard than I speak” – a form of address: invitatory.
