The Past in the Present: Examining the role of personal testimony from conflict


2/05/2017 - 2/05/2017


1:30PM - 4:00PM


Public Record Office of Northern Ireland, Titanic Quarter



Individual stories from conflict make a major contribution to understanding the ‘other’ and offer new ways of thinking beyond the traditional narratives of sectarianism. Using the Prisons Memory Archive as context, the panel examines the role of personal testimony.  Each panel member reflects through their own unique lens on the challenges and opportunities personal testimony brings.

In addition to other speakers, panellists will include:

  • Joanna McMinn, Prisons Memory Archive
  • Kate Turner, Healing Through Remembering
  • Wesley Geddis, Public Records Office of Northern Ireland.
