Symposium: Testimony, Memory and Reading Trauma in Representations of the Holocaust


This symposium, to be held on 15 July 2017 at the University of East Anglia, Norwich (UK), proposes a critical insight into contemporary representations of the Holocaust in Fiction, Poetry, Film, Historical and artistic interpretations. An intention to showcase research which  considers how interpretations of Holocaust memory and readings of narrative trauma challenge and redefine central conceptions of Holocaust studies, as well as opening a space for debate on varying forms of testimony in the Humanities. New critical perspectives such as speculative readings of the Holocaust as influence or after-image, as well as works considered examples of Holocaust impiety are of particular interest. Both researchers and practitioners are encouraged to submit papers.
