WATCH THE VIrtual Book Launch of Lessons and Legacies Volume XIV!

The Holocaust Educational Foundation of Northwestern University (HEFNU) and NU Press are pleased to announce the publication of the next volume in the Lessons and Legacies Series.
Lessons and Legacies XIV: The Holocaust in the Twenty-First Century: Relevance and Challenges in the Digital Age challenges a number of key themes in Holocaust studies. Collected essays reevaluate foundational concepts; use digital methodologies to examine mobility and space and their relationship to hiding, resistance, and emigration; and offer critical reflections on the utility of digital methods in scholarly, pedagogic, and public engagement with the Holocaust.

The webinar (December 16, 2020) features a roundtable that includes co-editors Tim Cole (University of Bristol) and Simone Gigliotti (Royal Holloway, University of London) and volume contributors Anne K. Knowles (University of Maine) and Sharon Oster (University of Redlands); chaired by HEFNU Director Sarah M. Cushman (Northwestern University).

“Tim Cole and Simone Gigliotti bring together a fascinating range of approaches from social history to cultural and migration and media studies, historical geography, literary studies, and linguistics. Their volume shows how methodological challenges of Holocaust scholarship can be addressed by taking on two scales of analysis—the microhistory of the individual and the mezzo-history of social groups.” —
Natalia Aleksiun, author of Conscious History: Polish-Jewish Historians before the Holocaust
