Title

Amann to be Research Visitor and Visiting Fellow at Oxford

Abstract

The University of Oxford, England, will host Associate Dean Diane Marie Amann during her research-intensive spring 2018 semester. In the Hilary and Trinity Terms – March through June – she will be a Research Visitor at the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights, hosted by the Faculty of Law, and a Visiting Fellow at Mansfield College, where the institute is based.

Amann joined the UGA law school in 2011, taking up the Woodruff Chair in International Law. She also has served, since 2015, as Georgia Law's Associate Dean for International Programs & Strategic Initiatives.

While at Oxford, Amann plans to continue her research on “Women at Nuremberg,” which explores the many roles women played in post-World War II international criminal trials in Europe, as prosecutors, defense counsel, journalists, witnesses, staffers and defendants. She also will have the opportunity to take part in Bonavero Institute activities and will benefit from Oxford’s libraries, seminars and lectures, and other offerings.

The Bonavero Institute was founded in 2016 as a unit of the Oxford Faculty of Law, under the direction of Professor Kate O’Regan, a former judge on the Constitutional Court of South Africa. Construction of the institute building, located at Mansfield College, is expected to be completed in early autumn.

Amann's research visit in England will follow her January 2018 appointment as the inaugural Breslauer, Rutman and Anderson Research Fellow at the Center for Advanced Genocide Research at the University of Southern California Shoah Foundation in Los Angeles.
