PhD Project

How do museum exhibitions or memorials represent liberal-legalist imaginaries about the role of criminal trials after periods of massive violence? How do they disrupt such imaginaries? Drawing on Walter Benjamin, Tiffany’s project interrogates museum exhibitions and memorials in Germany that inscribe and call into question dominate narratives found in the field of transitional justice about the relationship between accountability, rights, and the role of trials during periods of political transformation.
