The Annual Willard Kniep Lecture in History
Monday, September 18, 4:30pm, Taylor Auditorium, Marsh 216
Dr. Franziska Seraphim, Boston College, “The First Global Justice Network? Allied war crimes trials in Asia and Europe after World War II”
 
The Allied War Crimes Trial Program following the Second World War constituted a wide-ranging intervention by the victors in the making of the postwar world whose geographical scales are not yet fully understood. Did Allied efforts at adjudicating the crimes of Japanese and Germans constitute the world’s first global justice network? What social impact did the program’s transformation have from the worldwide effort to apprehend suspected war criminals even before the war’s end to the gradual release of the convicted, through clemency and parole, by 1958? This talk approaches such questions by way of three linked concepts: world systems, transitional justice, and carceral geographies, which highlight prisons and camps rather than courtrooms.
