Maša's article 'Judging Violent Resistances: Camus’s Artistic Sensibility and the Grey Zone of Rebellion' is now available at http://journals.sagepub.com/eprint/tgrt3M7UFhwGMWinYK6d/full
The article engages the grey zone of violent resistance – the morally ambiguous situations facing liberation activists that have generally fallen outside the grasp of transitional justice scholarship. For this purpose, it draws on Albert Camus’s artistic sensibility, reconstructing how his artistic appeal to the limits of rebellion can tackle the difficulty of judging violent resistance. The article demonstrates the relevance of Camus’s artistic sensibility on the case of the armed anti-apartheid struggle. It analyses two South African novels, Afrika’s The Innocents and Wicomb’s David’s Story, in an attempt to show how their literary insights can enrich the official vision of reconciliation as propounded by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
