    Silence as possibility in postwar everyday life2012In: International Journal of Transitional Justice, ISSN 1752-7716, E-ISSN 1752-7724, Vol. 6, no 3, p. 502-524Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Silence is a form of communication as multifaceted as speech and as such conveys a broad range of contextually situated social meanings. Often silence is understood as a form of denial and inherently detrimental to processes of reconciliation, but it may help create a sense of ‘normality’ and facilitate encounters between former foes. This article enquires into the role and meanings of silence as tacit forms of communication in postwar social processes and everyday life among people of different ethnic groups in Bosnia and Herzegovina, particularly as used by the displaced and returnees. It argues that in these contentious settings, everyday social interaction employs silence in ways that empower by communicating respect and even trust, thus forming and sustaining relations important to viable local life. Silence can be used to affirm family continuity and protect close relationships. Silent claims may also ‘speak’ from a marginalized position in relation to hegemonic narratives and make moral claims. Silence may thus be understood as a pragmatic and at times successful strategy for coexistence even when reflecting continued division in the larger society.

    The Stuff from the Siege: Transitional Justice and the Power of Everyday Objects in Museums2022In: International Journal of Transitional Justice, ISSN 1752-7716, E-ISSN 1752-7724, Vol. 16, no 2, p. 220-234Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the role of the affective power of everyday objects in commemorations of war and conflict. It seeks to understand the transformative power of the everyday as a memory node and investigates how and why everyday objects can become carriers of an inclusive rendering of the past. Through a phenomenologically grounded reading of two exhibitions on the 1992-1995 siege of the Bosnian capital Sarajevo, the article theoretically advances the idea that everyday objects that are transformed into artefacts in museums expand our moral, mnemonic imagination and therefore potentially contribute to peace. A systematic analysis of the affective power of everyday objects is developed through three key conceptual lenses - authenticity, intimacy and vulnerability. The study thus contributes to research on the postwar museum as a site for transitional justice and peacebuilding, and the role of material things as carriers of emotions and meaning in the context of postwar memorialization.
