Public concern about the prevalence and dynamics of sexual violence in war is global. The pioneering scholarship that drove this awareness now inspires researchers to revisit the silences of victims of sexual violence in "conflict archives." This interdisciplinary workshop brings together leading scholars working with testimonies of conflict-related sexual violence in archives across many periods and four continents. Their exchanges explore the role of sexual violence in campaigns of terror, past and present. Within this conversation, scholars reflect upon how survivor’s testimony is instrumentalized in later political and legal investigations that create "conflict archives."
