Call for Proposals: "Holocaust Studies in the Digital Age. What’s New?"

2019-01-04

In recent years digital practices have had a profound effect on Holocaust Studies. From its start in 2010 the European Holocaust Research infrastructure (EHRI) has not only been stimulating, but also monitoring and studying this development. The upcoming conference Holocaust Studies in the Digital Age, What's New?, organized by the NIOD, will explore how digital technology influences contemporary Holocaust research in its broadest sense. Is the research field undergoing a digital transition that profoundly changes its nature? We will take stock of the contemporary effects of the 'digital turn' by discussing three interrelated themes:

Digital representations as research tools

Session keynote: Digital Representations as Research Tools: The Experience of Geographies of the Holocaust, by Tim Cole (University of Bristol).

Commercial players as game changers

Session keynote: Re-Imagining the Team: Holocaust Research and Education in a Distributed Age, by Michael Haley Goldman (U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum).

Remembrance as an obligation

Session keynote: Debunking Digital Myths: Holocaust Memory for the Future, by Victoria Walden (University of Sussex).

By connecting these three topics, the conference aims to explore new directions, challenges and opportunities for Holocaust research in the digital age. To elaborate on these topics,  scholars in the field are invited to present their views. Each accepted proposal will be allotted up to 15 minutes for presentation followed by discussion. The conference will be conducted in English.

This conference will take place on 2 July 2019 at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. If you are interested in giving a presentation, please send a short proposal of no more than 500 words and a CV (including all relevant contact information) to: Martijn Eickhoff, m.eickhoff@niod.knaw.nl.

The deadline to submit proposals is 2 February 2019. Notification will be sent via email in March 2019.

Funding for travel and accommodation will be available for participants in accordance with European Commission guidelines and the EHRI project budget.

Please note that this conference will form one part of a broader event to take place in Amsterdam to mark the conclusion of the current EHRI project (further information will follow soon).
