The year 2020 will mark the 25th anniversary of the publication of Michel-Rolph Trouillot’s seminal text, Silencing the Past: Power and the Production of History. This conference will use the occasion of this anniversary to reflect both on the continued importance and afterlife of Silencing the Past (STP) and on its relationship to Trouillot’s larger oeuvre. Proceedings from the conference will be published as a volume in 2020.
