Advanced Seminar: Disturbing Bodies: A Relational Exploration of Forensic Archaeological Practice

School of Advanced Research seminar on the values and beliefs that underlie forensic exhumation

 25–29 de marzo de 2012

The last 20 years have witnessed the judicial and humanitarian excavation of human remains on an unprecedented scale. While the technical literature on the detection and excavation of mass graves has developed rapidly, it is only recently that forensic archaeologists have started to consider the ethics of exhumation. This seminar will bring together scholars and practitioners who work on issues related to the excavation of mass graves across the globe, including Guatemala, Cyprus, Spain, Argentina, and the former Soviet Union. The aim is to discuss the values and beliefs that underlie forensic exhumation, and to explore the tensions that arise in the practice of forensic archaeological work.
