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.
Scholars working under the broad umbrella of New Materialism have offered compelling reappraisals of the ways in which we know, interact with, and exist in the world. This scholarship also intersects with recent work on music and sound, which raises rich sets of questions regarding human agency, material, ethics, aesthetics, embodiment, and the subject/object dichotomy, among other issues.
The guest editorial team and I are currently seeking papers relevant to teaching practices for addressing diverse students’ needs for academic success in universities. For consideration, manuscripts may be submitted by June, 2020. If this issue is of particular interest to you or your colleagues, we are happy to invite you to consider submitting a manuscript.

Growing up is a perennial feature of human societies. While anxieties surrounding childhood are universal, the manifestations of these concerns vary between cultures. This series of sessions proposes to shed light upon the nexus of ambiguity surrounding the medieval child, as depicted in contemporaneous literature. We invite abstracts for papers that will explore the representation of childhood in texts of any language, genre, and period within the Middle Ages. Topic may include, but are not limited to:
