Khmer Rouge on the Mapping Memories Cambodia

This webinar was recorded on September 30, 2021

Abstract

Bunsim San will be joining CKS President Eve Zucker to  the Mapping Memories Cambodia Project—a Khmer Rouge place-based storytelling website and mobile application  that identifies places of significance related to the Khmer Rouge era on a digital map of Cambodia. One-third of Cambodia’s population was born after the Khmer Rouge regime and most of these young people know very little about the regime. In the context of rapid social and economic development, an examination of this past has been taken for granted. There is a possibility that evidence of Khmer Rouge history will not be remembered or discussed among the next generation. Providing a simple and accessible tool for young Cambodians to learn about places of significance for the Khmer Rouge era will be an important mechanism for dialogue about this history to continue.

The webinar will be in a discussion format.
