Henry Redwood (King’s College London)

Dr. Henry Redwood is ESRC post-doctoral researcher in the Department of War Studies, King’s College London. His research draws on critical IR, law and aesthetic theory to explore the politics of knowledge production after conflict, with a particular focus on post-conflict archives and artistic interventions. He completed his ESRC-funded PhD in the War Studies department at King’s College London in December 2017, under the supervision of Dr. Rachel Kerr and Professor James Gow.  The PhD drew on critical theory to examine the International Criminal Tribunal Rwanda’s archive, and asked what rules underpinned the construction of knowledge within the archive, and what implications this had for the court as a response to the Rwandan genocide. As part of this project Henry worked as a legal researcher at the ICTR, where he helped produce a history of the Rwandan genocide as part of the ‘Genocide Story Project’. Since completing his PhD Henry also worked as a research associate on the AHRC funded project, ‘Art & Reconciliation: Conflict, Culture and Community’, which explores alternative approaches, and forgotten instances of, reconciliation in the aftermath of violence, focused on the Western Balkans. Henry holds a BA and MA in History from the University of Bristol.

Henry is a Co-Investigator on the Phase 2 project ‘Izazov‘ (Bosnia and Herzegovina).
