Rachel Hatcher

Trained as a historian at the University of Saskatchewan, Rachel Hatcher left Saskatoon to go to what turned out to be the South African version of Saskatoon — Bloemfontein, in the Free State. She is currently a post-doctoral research fellow at the Institute for Reconciliation and Social Justice at the University of the Free State. Her current research examines how reconciliation is imagined in the South African, Kenyan, Honduran, and Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Commissions. ​She has also been writing a regular series on how South African history is portrayed in public places for ActiveHistory.ca.
