NeMLA 2020: Affect and Empathy: Holocaust Memory in Contemporary Narratives

updated: 
Friday, August 2, 2019 - 5:05pm
Cartina Hoppes / Harvard University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 25, 2019

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.
