 As part of the Archives in Historical Memory in Guatemala Symposium, please join us for a reception between panel discussions in which researchers will present their work. 

This two-day symposium on April 11th and 12th brings a variety of experts to Haverford College in order to present work on how archival materials can be used in efforts to shift historical memory of conflict and human rights violations. These discussions are grounded in the shared experiences of working in the context of transitional justice following Guatemala’s Armed Internal Conflict. Activities and presentations will link these experiences to the importance of the Grupo de Apoyo Mutuo (GAM) Digital Archive - a collaboration between the GAM and Haverford College Libraries to digitize, describe, and share the human rights organizations’ case files on desaparecidos, or disappeared, and other human rights violations.
