About the Speakers
Caroline Bennett's research examines the lived spaces of mass graves, exploring the everyday interactions and relationships related to these places, including perceptions of excavation, and the intersection of international, national, and local discourses on the subject. In doing so she questions many assumptions existing about mass graves and their victims, including the assumed need for investigation and formal reconciliation. Prior to beginning her PhD Caroline worked as a forensic anthropologist in the US, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Iraq on criminal and mass grave investigations.
