Discussion Questions

  1. What does “reconciliation” entail to different identities?  (To survivors, to the government, to settlers, to researchers, etc.)
  2. Does “reconciliation” look different inside and outside of the archive? If so, how can we connect these different imaginings of “reconciliation” in order to construct a social future?
  3. How can we work with information and knowledge about social history within archives without trapping events in the past? (i.e. How can we treat reconciliation as an ongoing process rather than a one-time historical moment?)
