Gender, narrative and affect: Top-down politics of commemoration in post-genocide Rwanda
Swedish Institute of International Affairs, Sweden.ORCID-id: 0000-0002-6870-7876
2017 (Engelska)Ingår i: Memory Studies, ISSN 1750-6980, E-ISSN 1750-6999, Vol. 13, nr 2, s. 131-145Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat) Published
Abstract [en]

This article takes an interest in gendered memory politics and addresses the dearth of research on gender and commemoration in relation to the genocide in Rwanda. It analyses elite-produced gendered narratives at key sites of commemoration and investigates their affective role in constituting the post-genocide Rwandan state. Through a methodological approach of ‘the situated gaze’, three central observations are made. First, women are mourned as a specific category of rape victims and mothers. Second, women’s experiences of sexual violence are at the same time censored and de-individualized. Third, no other experiences, beyond being a victim, are taken into account. The article finds that the top-down affective memory politics circumscribes the role women played during and after the genocide, and restricts their agency within the present state project of ‘national unity and reconciliation’.
