Presentación/Introduction

En las dos últimas décadas, el campo de los estudios sobre genocidio se ha expandido notoriamente. Sin embargo, hasta el momento no ha existido una sólida consideración académica de las consecuencias de los genocidios, incluyendo los modos en que las sociedades post-conflicto han abordado las cuestiones de la verdad, la memoria, la justicia y la elaboración.



El foco elegido esta vez resulta particularmente apropiado dado que la actual será la primera conferencia en América Latina de la Asociación Internacional de Investigadores sobre Genocidio.



En los procesos de resistencia ante la violencia masiva en el subcontinente, una sentencia se hizo consigna social de los pueblos: Memoria, Verdad y Justicia. Pese a los intentos de canjear una por otra (Justicia por Verdad), las sociedades latinoamericanas han insistido y siguen insistiendo en que sólo la articulación de los tres pilares puede permitir la recuperación ante las consecuencias del terror. Memoria, Verdad y Justicia se proponen, entonces, en tanto condiciones del cuarto término, Elaboración.


Over the last two decades, the field of genocide studies has rapidly proliferated.

To date, however, the field has not fully addressed the aftermat of genocide, including the ways in which post-conflict societies negotiate issues of truth and memory and seek justice and recovery.



This focus is particularly appropriate given the venue, Argentina, and the fact that this will be the first IAGS conference ever held in Latin America. During 1980s and 1990s, the phrase “truth, memory, and justice” became a key watchword of resistance and resilience.



Despite periodic attempts to focus on one of these issues alone (for example, seeking truth instead of justice), many people in Latin America have and continue to insist that only the three pillars together enable individual and social recovery from collective terror. Truth, Memory, and Justice, then, are preconditions for the fourth pillar, Recovery.

Sobre la organización de este programa/ About the organization of this program:



La recepción de trabajos para esta Conferencia ha superado toda expectativa, lo que nos ha obligado a establecer una regla por la cual no fue aceptado más que un trabajo por persona, pese a que muchos investigadores habían remitido una cantidad mayor. Esta regla sólo fue quebrada con la invitación a algunos investigadores a integrar los paneles semi-plenarios (organizados por el Comité Académico) o a participar como Moderadores o Comentaristas de alguna de las mesas.



La agrupación de paneles respetó las propuestas enviadas. Como la mayoría de los trabajos no fueron incluidos en paneles previos, este Comité se ha tomado la atribución de agruparlos en función de temáticas afines. En los numerosos casos en que dichas tópicos cubren más de un panel, se han dividido en sesiones buscando nunca superponer las sesiones de la misma temática, para permitir a los investigadores asistir al conjunto de sesiones de un tema, en caso de desearlo.



Asimismo, en la asignación de aulas se buscó dejar libres los horarios de paneles semi-plenarios. Sin embargo, por la cantidad de trabajos recibidos esto tampoco fue posible. Se optó, entonces, por ubicar en los horarios de paneles semi-plenarios, sesiones que no tuvieran vinculación alguna con los antes mencionados, a modo de ofrecer al igual que durante toda la Conferencia, opciones diferentes para públicos diferentes.



Dada la calidad de los trabajos recibidos y la selección previa realizada por el Comité Académico, sumada a la política de contar con traducción simultánea inglés-español/español-inglés para el conjunto de los trabajos presentadas en esta Conferencia, se optó por agruparlos por temáticas, no seleccionando en el armado de los paneles entre ponencias en inglés o en español o ponencias presentadas por profesionales o por estudiantes de posgrado. Esto permitirá, a nuestro entender, una mayor posibilidad de diálogo intercultural e intergeneracional.



Esperando haber cumplido nuestro objetivo y ofrecer un ámbito enriquecedor para el intercambio académico, los invitamos a la IXa Conferencia de IAGS.

The call for papers for this conference has exceeded all expectations, which has forced us to establish a rule that was to accept only one paper per participant, although many researchers had sent more. This rule has only been broken by inviting some scholars to participate in semi-plenary panels - organized by the Academic Committee - or to participate as moderators or reviewers on one of the regular sessions.





The panel clustering has respected proposals submitted. As most works were not included in previous panels, this Committee has taken the assignment to group according to similar topics. In the numerous occasions where these issues covered more than one panel’s subject, these have been divided into sessions so as to never overlap similar panels, therefore allowing researchers to attend all sessions of a same area.



Moreover, in the allocation of panel rooms, organizers tried to leave free from schedule those in which semi-plenary panels would take place. However, the number of entries received made this nearly impossible, consequently locating semi-plenary panel sessions at times that have no connection whatsoever with these panels was decided, as well as throughout the conference; different options for different audiences.



Due to the quality of work received and the previous selection made by the Academic Committee, together with the policy of having English-Spanish/Spanish-English simultaneous translation for the whole of presented papers in this Conference, we chose to sort them by theme, without distinction in the composition of the panels, language of the presentation as well as integrating academic professionals with graduate students. This will in our view, provides a greater chance of inter-cultural dialogue.



Hoping to have reached our goal and provide a rich field for academic exchange, we invite you to the IXth IAGS Conference.

Reseña de la Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero / Overview of Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero





La Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero fue creada en 1995 con el objetivo no sólo de constituirse en otra Universidad pública nacional, sino con la peculiaridad de buscar formar recursos humanos específicamente destinados a solucionar los problemas económicos, sociales, humanísticos, educativos y sanitarios de la región en la que se encuentra situada, el partido de Tres de Febrero. Dicha región es caracterizada económicamente como de radicación de pequeñas y medianas empresas e industria urbana y cuenta con población de clase media y media baja, con zonas de exclusión social, y con buenos sistemas sanitarios y educacionales.



Sin embargo, como Universidad nacional pública, la misma no posee una mirada exclusivamente localista, sino que busca que sus egresados puedan contribuir al desarrollo global del país.

Son estas áreas de necesidades insatisfechas, tanto de orden local, regional como nacional, las que guían la propuesta académica de la UNTREF, que incluye la decisión de explorar nuevos espacios de conocimiento, más allá de las carreras más tradicionales desarrolladas en las universidades más antiguas.



Es así que la UNTREF ha decidido priorizar en su desarrollo académico áreas como Administración y Economía, Ciencias Sociales, Metodología de Investigación, Estadística y Matemática, Artes y Cultura, Salud y Seguridad Social, Ingeniería o Educación.



De manera de potenciar los resultados positivos en investigación, docencia y extensión, la UNTREF se ha focalizado también en áreas específicas de conocimiento que ha decidido privilegiar, las que se canalizan a través de los núcleos, institutos y centros de investigación.

Las áreas cubiertas representan sectores de alta preocupación en el debate académico mundial y con su acción la UNTREF se pone a la vanguardia de la producción del conocimiento en el país y en el continente. Entre las áreas de investigación se destacan, en especial, historia, diversidad cultural, estudios comparados sobre genocidios, artes y cultura, educación comparada, estadística, entre otras temáticas.



Por otra parte, la UNTREF cuenta en su biblioteca con un reservorio de piezas documentales superior a las 30.000 unidades, considerando la bibliografía básica y complementaria, el material de referencia, los CD y videos y la suscripción a publicaciones periódicas nacionales e internacionales. Estas cifras ubican a la UNTREF dentro de los parámetros de excelencia en los estándares internacionales.



Con el claro objetivo de transformar a sus estudiantes en estudiantes-investigadores y a la institución en una incubadora de la tarea investigativa, la decisión de Rectorado lleva a plantearse como meta incrementar en el período 2010-2013 en un treinta por ciento la base bibliográfica y documental, tanto física como electrónica. Acompasado con las nuevas concepciones, los puestos de enlace permiten la conexión con las bibliotecas virtuales más reconocidas internacionalmente.



Al mismo tiempo, La Editorial de la Universidad, EDUNTREF, es un emprendimiento de cultura. Su objetivo es difundir tanto trabajos elaborados por docentes e investigadores de nuestra universidad, como obras representativas del acervo de la cultura argentina y universal. En el período 1998/2010 se han distribuido más de 125 mil ejemplares.



Actualmente la propuesta académica de UNTREF incluye treinta carreras de grado: dieciséis licenciaturas y dos profesorados de ciclo completo, nueve complementaciones curriculares, y tres ingenierías. Asimismo, cuenta con tres doctorados, dieciséis maestrías y diecinueve carreras de especialización.



En su dimensión artística y cultural, la UNTREF ha contado con más de 175 mil visitantes, en 26 muestras (a mediados de 2010) y más de 760 obras exhibidas indican el impacto del MUNTREF, el museo de la Universidad.



El cuerpo docente es en la actualidad de alrededor de 800 profesores, en una matrícula que totaliza entre grado y posgrado una cifra superior a los 10.000 alumnos.





The Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero was established in 1995, not only with the aim of becoming a new national public university, but also with another specific purpose. This goal was to develop human resources specially assigned to solve economic, social, humanistic, educational and sanitary problems of the region where the University is located- the Tres de Febrero district. This region is economically characterized by small and medium size companies and urban industry. Its population is middle to middle-lower class, with areas of social exclusion and good sanitary and educational systems.



However, as a national public university, it does not have exclusively a local view. The university seeks to contribute to the global development of the country through its graduates.

It is these areas where needs are not fulfilled, whether for a local, regional or national position, the ones that lead the academic proposal of UNTREF. It includes the determination to explore new fields of knowledge, beyond traditional degrees as those which come up in older universities.



In this scene, UNTREF has decided to give priority to academic areas such as Management and Economics, Social Sciences, Research methodology, Statistics and Mathematics, Arts and Culture, Health and Social Security, Engineering or Education.



In order to maximize the good results in research, teaching and extension, UNTREF has also focused on specific knowledge fields through developing forums, institutes and study centres.



The chosen fields represent high concern issues within worldwide academic debate, therefore UNTREF gets at the forefront of knowledge production in our country and our continent. These outstanding fields are: history, cultural diversity, comparative studies on genocide, arts and culture, comparative education and statistics among others.



In addition, UNTREF library holdings have over 30,000 pieces. These include basic and complementary bibliographic tools, reference material, CDs and videos as well as subscriptions to national and international publications. These figures place UNTREF within excellence parameters among international standards.



The Rectorate has the clear purpose of making learners-researchers out of its students, and a research incUniversidad de Buenos Airestor out of the institution, consequently the university aims to increase thirty per cent of both electronic and physical bibliographic and documentary base, during 2010-2013.



Online access is also available to important international virtual libraries, thus increasing the range of information available to researchers and students.



At the same time, the publishing house of Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero, -“EDUNTREF”-, is a cultural endeavour. Its goal is not only to spread the work produced by its teachers and researchers, but also to maintain a collection of significant pieces of Argentinean and universal culture. In the period 1998/2010, 125 thousand published works have been distributed.

Currently, UNTREF academic departments offer thirty degrees: sixteen bachelor’s degrees and two teacher’s degrees, nine curricular complements, and three engineering degrees. In addition, it has three doctorates, sixteen masters and nineteen specialization degrees.



In regards of its artistic and cultural side, UNTREF has been visited by over 175 thousand people in 26 exhibitions (in mid 2010), and over 760 pieces exhibited indicate the high impact of its University museum -“MUNTREF”-.



The teachers board counts on approximately 800 teachers, with an enrolment number of over 10 thousand students, including graduate and postgraduate programmes.

Features

Over the last two decades, the field of genocide studies has rapidly proliferated. To date, however, the field has not fully addressed the aftermaths of genocide, including the ways in which post-conflict societies negotiate issues of truth, memory, justice, and recovery.



This focus is particularly appropriate given the venue, Argentina, and the fact that this will be the first IAGS conference ever held in Latin America. During 1980s and 1990s, the phrase “truth, memory, and justice” became a key watchword of resistance and resilience. Despite periodic attempts to focus on one of these issues alone (for example, seeking truth instead of justice), many people in Latin America have and continue to insist that only the three pillars together enable individual and social recovery from collective terror. Truth, Memory, and Justice, then, are preconditions for the fourth pillar, Recovery.



The IAGS and CEG-UNTREF welcome papers and sessions on all aspects of genocide, particularly those devoted to our conference theme, “Genocide: Truth, Memory, Justice, and Recovery.” Innovative panels, workshops, and papers that consider the dynamics, causes, and consequences of genocide, issues of memory and representation, the role of justice and truth in post-conflict societies and the paths to individual and collective recovery are welcomed. Besides panels and papers, the organizers encourage other modes of dialogue, including workshops, roundtable discussions, book presentations, cultural media, and artistic works/readings, including forums that relate to policy initiatives, pedagogy, and education concerned with the history and prevention of genocide. Genocide studies cover a wide range of approaches and theories. Scholars, practitioners, activists, teachers, and students interested in genocide studies from all disciplines are encouraged to apply.
