Nina Maria Gorrissen Lecture

Victims in the Shadow of Conflict

Experiences of political violence shape the political identities of victims and their descendants. But not all such experiences have the same lasting intergenerational effects. In this talk, Noam Lupu offers a novel argument about what kinds of experiences of violence do and do not cause lasting intergenerational trauma for their victims, focusing particularly on the role played by blame-attribution and ethnic targeting in Crimea, Cambodia, and Guatemala, looking as well survey data from two cross-national projects on conflict experiences.
