The Search for Humanity After Atrocity
An NEH-funded virtual seminar, June 17-30, 2021
June 17 - 30, 2021
This two-week seminar will rethink the prolific field of atrocity studies by exploring it from the perspective of victims. Using the Holocaust era as a case study, it aspires to determine the emotional demands of survival. Though usually the province of psychological study, traumatic injuries occur in contexts that historians are equipped to evaluate for their influence on victims' internal dynamics and legacies. This seminar is designed for higher education faculty at all career stages but also welcomes human rights and other NGO leaders, museums and memorials of conscience directors and curators, and Holocaust and other genocide center directors.
