Dr Anna Katila

Anna has recently completed her PhD in Comparative Literature and War Studies at King’s College London and is now a visiting researcher at the Conflict Studies Centre at the Philipps-University Marburg. Her interdisciplinary research explores legal and creative narratives about the aftermath of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda and the Yugoslav Wars, focusing on the ways in which transitional justice goals are constructed and communicated in narratives. She is the author of an article entitled ‘Unearthing Ambiguities: Post-Genocide Justice in Raoul Peck’s Sometimes in April and the ICTR case Nahimana et al.’ that was published in The International Journal of Transitional Justice. Her broader research interests sit at the intersection of cultural-legal studies, memory studies and gender.
