>Venue: The Blue Room , Building B, Room 2. 20, Burwood Campus,
>This paper examines the way difficult sites of imprisonment, trauma
>and resistance are being remembered in the newly independent nation
>of East Timor. Most societies have their scars of history, and a
>range of places, sites and institutions that represent the legacy of
>these difficult periods. Following 450 years of Portuguese
>colonialism, and a traumatic 24- year struggle against Indonesian
>occupation, East Timor has a great many sites which chart a painful
>legacy of colonialism, civil war, and resistance against
>These important, but often ambivalently regarded sites of historical
>memory recall traumatic episodes in the national history, raising
>difficult questions of heritage conservation, particularly where
>budget resources are limited. How are such places to be remembered?
>How do people and societies cope with painful memories? Should these
>aspects of national heritage be expunged or memorialised? This paper
>examines East Timorese responses to these difficult issues since
>independence in 2002.
