CfP: Translated Memories: Transgenerational Perspectives in Literature on the Holocaust
We are looking for abstracts for a follow-up publication to the colloquium "Translated Memories" that took place at the Steinheim Institute in Essen, Germany, on July 14, 2015, which addressed the subject of writing about the Holocaust today: How can memories of the Holocaust be constituted and transformed in a transgenerational and transnational perspective?
The concept of translation is of pivotal interest in this context. When talking about "translation," we literally mean code switching. However, the term "translation" is also appropriate if one wants to describe psychological mechanisms and cultural processes.
