Creating Space for Relevant Debate

Join the conversation with a panel of expert thinkers as they engage in a critical debate surrounding representations of the Holocaust.

The Holocaust is widely represented in popular media as well as in traditionally ‘historical’ contexts, such as museums and archival spaces. This discussion will explore why it is that in a period marked by a decline in the number of living survivors there has been widespread proliferation of historical and artistic representations documenting the experiences of survivors.

Speakers include Cultural and memory studies specialist Noah Shenker, ethics specialist Daniella Doron, and Curator of the Jewish Holocaust Centre, Jayne Josem. Moderated by Humanities 21 Committee Member Jeff Richardson.

Creating Space for Relevant Debate is a series presented in collaboration with Humanities 21.
