In Media Res: War Without Witness (Original Formatting)

My piece on mobile phone testimony and Sri Lanka’s civil war, “War without witness: Mobile phone testimony in preserving memory and truths,” is now live at In Media Res, a space for experimental, multimodal scholarship alongside video curating. Given that I’m more used to writing about the conflict with a creative stylistic eye, I wrote in the vein of the memoir I’ve been shopping around. I was hoping the site would preserve my original formatting and spacing, but it wasn’t to be.

If you want to see it in its original glory, I’ve posted the original version as a PDF. The curated video is posted below.

Please be advised that the video contains violent imagery of extrajudicial executions, torture, and evidence of systematic rape. All of the clips in it are excerpted from Channel 4’s documentary Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields.
