War trophies in the age of mechanical reproduction: Evidence from human rights courts

Dec 12, at 12-13, Seminar room, Finngatan 16

At UMass Amherst Violence and Conflict Laboratory, we examined twenty-two photographs of slain Kurdish revolutionaries that were unclassified for Turkish courts for identification of human remains in a mass grave site. They were killed in 1998 and the photographs were made available to the court in 2014. These photographs were not produced for forensic purposes, instead they were treated as trophies that would be displayed to superiors as proof of military success and to families of slain insurgents. Dead bodies and human parts are used as writing materials during warfare and conquest. 

Bilgesu Sumer is a political scientist, translator and human rights activist from Turkey.
