Beatriz Manz on “Anthropologist as Witness: Spain’s Guatemala Genocide Case”
In the early 1980s, Guatemala’s human rights abuses reached genocidal proportions. As an anthropologist who studies Guatemalan society, Prof. Manz has taken the position, controversial within the profession, that public exposure of what took place is the necessary and ethical path. She has provided expert testimony before Congressional committees and asylum judges, written opinion pieces for such papers as The New York Times and The International Herald Tribune and, more recently, provided expert testimony before the National Court in Madrid, Spain, which is considering genocide charges against several Guatemalan military officers.Beatriz Manz is a professor of geography and ethnic studies at UC Berkeley and has done extensive anthropological fieldwork in Guatemala. Her book, Paradise in Ashes, chronicles the devastation in the war-torn rainforest region of northern Guatemala.
