Digital Holocaust Memory from the Margins: Practices, Places, and Narratives

In recent years, the “digital” is redefining Holocaust memory. Digital media facilitates the co-‎production of memory by a wide spectrum of new agents. Museums capitalize on new ‎technologies in their permanent exhibits and educational activities. Augmented reality helps ‎visitors to visualize the destroyed site of Bergen-Belsen; “Eva’s Story” brings the experience of ‎young Holocaust victims to the cellphones of millions of teenagers; selfies at death sites summon ‎up reactions of internet friends. More recently, as the COVID-19 pandemic spiraled worldwide, ‎all Holocaust commemorations went digital, as social-distancing policies curtailed on-site, offline ‎activities. These examples speak to the culture of “virtual Holocaust memory” (Walden, 2019) ‎that (re)defines how people engage with the Holocaust and its remembrance. ‎

While digital culture opens new horizons, it also poses new challenges for Holocaust memory, ‎education, and commemoration, which have yet to be critically understood. For example, core ‎questions regarding the digital divide are highly relevant to Holocaust memory practices: What ‎are the consequences of digitalization for Holocaust-memory institutions located in the Global ‎South? What are the possibilities of Holocaust education in peripheral areas that have no ‎broadband internet connection? Does digitalization create new intergenerational forums or ‎marginalize survivors with limited access to internet platforms? Are we turning Holocaust ‎commemoration and education into the privilege of more connected (Western) societies? If so, ‎how does this impact the discourse on the globalization and democratization of Holocaust ‎narratives? The online international conference: “Digital Holocaust Memory from the Margins – ‎Practices, Places, and Narratives” engages these questions in an attempt to develop critical ‎thinking on the culture of digital Holocaust memory. ‎

The online conference will take place on June 1-3, 2021. In this conference, we seek to promote ‎an interdisciplinary conversation between acknowledged and new understandings of Holocaust ‎research. To this end we welcome papers from established and younger scholars across ‎disciplines, artists, curators, educators and activists.‎

The following subjects may be considered, among others:‎

‎-‎ Digital Holocaust memory and the Global South

‎-‎ Digital Holocaust memory and social/geographical peripheries

‎-‎ Digitalization of Holocaust museums

‎-‎ Covid-19 and digitalization processes in Holocaust museums‎

‎-‎ Holocaust commemoration in a digital world

‎-‎ The digital divide and its implications for Holocaust memory

‎-‎ Marginal practices of digital Holocaust memory

‎-‎ The effect of digitalization processes and practices on local narratives of the Holocaust

‎-‎ Popular (as opposed to institutional) digital practices of Holocaust memory

‎-‎ Youth culture and the use of social media in the context of Holocaust remembrance‎

We welcome paper proposals addressing these issues and others from a variety of perspectives. ‎English-language abstracts of proposed papers should be submitted through the conference’s ‎website. Proposals should include a title, name and affiliation of the ‎participant(s), email address, a long abstract of up to 300 words, a short abstract of up to 300 ‎characters, and a brief biographical note (maximum 100 words).‎
