Agata Fijalkowski

Reader in Law, Leeds Beckett University, Leeds Beckett University

My main research interest is in transitional justice, the law and the visual, and war crimes trials. My current project considers how we experience the law when viewing images. I focus on photographs of trials from the period 1944-1957 in Albania, Germany and Poland. The research resulted in an exhibition on the Albanian writer/political dissident Musine Kokalari at the National Science and Media Museum. As well as curating the display, I produced a short, 'arty' film to accompany it, entitled An Unsung Hero: Musine Kokalari (2017). Watch this space for my forthcoming monograph.
