CFP: Testimony and Collective Memory in Literature of the Holocaust (11/10/05; 4/21/06-4/23/06)

 

The Ninth Annual Red River Conference on World Literature

North Dakota State University, Fargo

April 21-23, 2006

 

This proposed panel will examine the ways in which the writer/survivor negotiates his or her role in narrating the Holocaust. As Charlotte Delbo tells her reader in the headnote to her three-volume trilogy, Auschwitz and After, "Today I am not sure that what I wrote is true. I am certain it is truthful." Thus for a writer such as Delbo, the purpose of testimony is both to convey personal experience and to commemorate silenced voices.
