Hi, I am researching the uses of ‘performativity’ in Holocaust memorialization. I seek to examine case studies of audience-participatory projects (e.g. artworks, new media, museum exhibitions, performances) which commemorate the World War II and the victims of the Holocaust.
Projects of interest for this study:
- ask participants to perform symbolic rituals and gestures of commemoration; or to contribute with written or oral responses
Summer Research Workshops for Scholars

We’re looking for some new editors to run H-Genocide. I’ve done what I can to hold down the ship but we’d like to get the position filled with a team of people who know the field much better than I.
H-Net is pleased to announce the launch of the World War I Crossroads, a collaboration between editors and networks on the Commons dedicated to the scholarly study and discussion of World War I and the centennial commemoration of the conflict. This new Crossroads network will produce original content, facilitate initiatives on the conflict across multiple H-Net Networks, and highlight World War I postings from anywhere on the H-Net Commons.
