Call For Papers

Representing the Holocaust: Present and Future (A Seminar at the 2012 ACLA)

The American Comparative Literature Association’s 2012 Annual Meeting will take place at Brown University, Providence, RI from March 29th to April 1st, 2012. Conference Theme: “Collapse/Catastrophe/Change”

This seminar welcomes papers that consider recent developments in Holocaust representation across a range of disciplines and spaces, broadly conceived. Possible questions to be considered include, but are not limited to: How are authors, filmmakers, artists, historians, curators, teachers, and others representing the Holocaust? What forms, approaches and strategies are used, and who is the intended audience? What claims to authenticity can such representations make? What relationship is there between Holocaust representation and contemporary culture? What distinct moral, ethical and aesthetic risks do artistic representations take, should they be managed, and in what ways? What relationship is there between representations of the Holocaust and representations of other traumas, atrocities, and catastrophes? How will the passage of the survivor generation affect issues of representation? How will future generations comprehend the Holocaust and its representation, and what are the implications for issues such as witnessing? This seminar will attempt to address these and related questions.
