Biography: 

Bridget Conley is the Research Director of the World Peace Foundation and Associate Research Professor at The Fletcher School. At WPF, she is the lead researcher on the “Tracking COVID-19 in Detention” and  Mass Atrocities projects. Her research has focused on memory following mass atrocities and has produced a book, Memory from the Margins: Ethiopia’s Red Terror Martyrs Memorial Museum (Palgrave 2019). She is the editor of How Mass Atrocities End: Studies from Guatemala, Burundi, Indonesia, the Sudans, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Iraq (Cambridge University Press 2016). She has published on issues related to the 1992 – 1995 war in Bosnia, mass atrocities and genocide, and how museums can engage on human rights issues.

In 2020-2021, she is a Faculty Fellow at the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life. Her project is, “Connecting people to resources: A Proposal to Support the Tufts Educational Re-entry Network,” which will be developed in conversation with the Tufts University Prison Initiative at Tisch College. It is part of the Tufts Educational Re-Entry Network (TERN), which aims to build programming for formerly incarcerated people in MA, valuing those in the network with lived experience of incarceration as leaders of the project. Working closely with formerly incarcerated people who have experience with re-entry challenges and opportunities, this project aims to create, workshop and launch a dynamic and sustainable online hub connecting people needing re-entry support with resources available through the larger community networks.
