Nicole Fox, PhD

Over the past decade, my research has centered on how remembrances of atrocity crimes shape the dynamics of social change. I am invested in understanding how social actors remember, reconcile, and rebuild in the aftermath of human rights abuses. How a community remembers its past has implications for the present-day, and the future. State narratives of the past, collective memory, and the allocation of resources after atrocity matter, as they impact contemporary policies, laws, and crime patterns.
