Mary Talk: Remembering the Holocaust

Please join us on Wednesday, Jan. 23, at 7 p.m. for the latest installment of Mary Talks.

Jennifer Hansen-Glucklich, Assistant Professor of German, will present “Rituals of Remembrance: How (and Why) We Remember the Holocaust the Way We Do.”

Her lecture will explore how Holocaust museums use aesthetic, spatial, and ritual techniques to create remembrance within specific national and cultural contexts. Photography exhibits, memorials, architecture, and video art displays are a few of the forms that shape how we remember the Holocaust. This lecture is based on Hansen-Glucklich’s book, “Holocaust Memory Reframed: Museums and the Challenges of Representation” (2014).

Mary Talks are held in the Digital Auditorium of the Hurley Convergence Center. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with the talk beginning at 7 p.m. A question-and-answer session and dessert reception will follow the talk. Although this event is free to attend, your registration is kindly requested.

If you are unable to attend in person, we encourage you to register instead for the webcast of the Mary Talk. Everyone registered for the webcast will receive a link to access the streaming video. This will be sent via email a few days before the event.

We look forward to seeing you, either on campus or online!  REGISTER HERE
