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
Applications due Oct. 9
