This panel explores a variety of narrative strategies that authors employ in order to negotiate the ethical and epistemological problems raised by the events of the Holocaust. Taking a cue from the conference theme “Shaping and Sharing Identities,” this panel is organized around contemporary reflection on and representation of the Holocaust and its continued impact on the present historical moment. Alongside pronounced generational shifts and the steady disappearance of the witness generation, Holocaust narratives are increasingly shaped by digitalization, politicization, and globalization of Holocaust memory.

In a teaching evaluation for a survey course, a student complained of “irreverence toward the canon,” perhaps conflating “canon” with institutional authority and “proper” knowledge, and a lack of reverence with moral laxity or heresy. But we believe “irreverence toward the canon” should be a goal of our critical teaching and scholarship, not a flaw. How can we be more irreverent toward the canon?
