Event Details

The Holocaust is widely represented in popular media as well as in traditionally ‘historical’ contexts, such as museums and archival spaces. In this talk, Dr Noah Shenker engages with critical debates surrounding those representations, and questions why – in a period marked by a decline in the number of living survivors of the Holocaust – there has been a widespread proliferation of historical and artistic representations which document the experiences of survivors.  Central to this talk are issues pertaining to the aesthetic and ethical challenges of representing the Holocaust in film, television, and other popular media.  

Join us on Wednesday 27 September at the Tonic House basement, 386 Flinders Lane. Complimentary nibbles are provided and drinks will be available at bar prices.

 

Dr Noah Shenker is the 6a Foundation and N. Milgrom Senior Lecturer in  Holocaust and Genocide Studies within the Australian Centre for Jewish  Civilisation at Monash University. His research and teaching specialisation  traverse the fields of Holocaust and genocide studies; trauma and memory  studies; and film and media studies. Noah’s most recent publications include  his monograph Reframing Holocaust Testimony (2015) and ‘Through the Lens of the Shoah: The Holocaust as a Paradigm for Documenting Genocide Testimonies’ in History & Memory (Spring/Summer 2016).

Humanities 21

The humanities don’t just keep our world interesting.

Insights into how our world works can be garnered from literature, history, philosophy, language, and other areas encompassed by the humanities. Those who understand these things are better able to tackle questions to which there are no clear answers, and entertain the ideas of others without jumping to conclusions. In an age of fake news and social media, critical thinking has never before been such a vital skill.

Humanities 21 exists to remind people that the humanities don’t just keep the world interesting; they cultivate the kinds of thinkers our world needs.
