Philip Gourevitch – The Rwandan Genocide and its Aftermath
We wish to inform you that tomorrow we will be killed with our families. This is the title of Philip Gourevitch’s award-winning book about the 1994 Rwandan genocide of Tutsis by Hutus, in which nearly a million persons were systematically murdered. Currently Mr. Gourevitch – a regular contributor to the New Yorker magazine – is working on a new book about the aftermath of the Rwandan genocide – how a society can begin to recover from a collective trauma of such magnitude. In his talk he will share with us his most recent research and reflections.
