CFP: Lessons & Legacies 2024: “Languages of the Holocaust”

Deadline: December 4, 2023

Call for Papers

Lessons & Legacies 2024:”Languages of the Holocaust”

14 – 17 November 2024 Claremont and Los Angeles, California 

Submission Deadline: 4 December 2023

The Seventeenth Biennial Lessons and Legacies Conference, sponsored by the Holocaust Educational Foundation of Northwestern University, and hosted by Claremont McKenna College and the University of Southern California, invites proposals for papers, panels, workshops, and seminars. This conference will focus on languages of the Holocaust and its history, representation, and memory. We aim to bring together scholars working in different languages, disciplines, discourses, and methodologies for intellectual exchange.

We encourage proposals that interpret the theme “languages of the Holocaust” from a wide range of vantagepoints and disciplines. The conference theme refers both to the specific languages in which people have spoken and written—during and about—the Holocaust, as well as the ways in which the Holocaust has been represented in a wide range of discourses (documentary, archival, testimonial, judicial, academic, artistic, non-verbal, photographic). We are interested in proposals that explore different phases of the vast and ever-expanding range of postwar discourses by survivors and their descendants, scholars, artists, filmmakers, journalists, and so forth. Further, we invite proposals that take up issues of translation in both its literal and figurative meanings in the field of Holocaust Studies.
