________________________________

This seminar will draw attention to the power of arpilleras (hand sewn patchwork) and quilts as a means to depict stories and experiences of conflict. During the Pinochet dictatorship in Chile (1973 - 1990 ) arpilleras were used to narrate, denounce, resist, survive, respond, memoralise and record personal and social experiences of human rights violations, especially during conflict and war. The use of these textiles also allowed women to contest their role in society.

The seminar will make direct reference to three recent exhibitions organised by Roberta Bacic to illustrate these themes. It will also explore the challenges and opportunities in making this type of material available on line.

For a general overview of the exhibitions and associated activities that have taken place since 2008, please visit www.cain.ulst.ac.uk/quilts<http://www.cain.ulst.ac.uk/quilts>.

Roberta Bacic, taught at Universidad Austral de Chile from 1973 to 1981. From 1982 she worked in Carlos Anwandter German Institute and San Mateo College both in Chile. Between 1993 and 1996, she worked for the National Corporation of Reparation and Reconciliation, the successor to the Truth Commission. During this time she also taught in Human Rights at the Catholic University, Temuco, Chile. She then moved to the United Kingdom and took up the position of Programme and Development Officer for War Resisters' International where she worked between 1998 and 2002. She moved to Northern Ireland in 2004.

Since 2008, Roberta has curated more than 50 international exhibitions of arpilleras. Over time, these exhibitions have expanded from arpilleras from Pinochet's Chile, to include expressions of loss, protest and healing from around the world.

________________________________

Accounts of the Conflict will create an on-line digital archive which will offer long-term storage and preservation of a range of personal accounts relating to life in Northern Ireland and the border region during the period of the conflict.

Individuals, groups and organisations will be able to deposit digital copies of personal accounts with the new archive.

The Accounts of the Conflict project is a 2 year project funded by the European Union's PEACE III programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.

The project will be delivered by INCORE (International Conflict Research Institute), based at the University of Ulster. Work on the project commenced in January 2013 and will be completed in December 2014.
