IHR Winter Conference 2018: Home: New Histories of Living
This conference will host pathbreaking research exploring the ways the home has been thought about, utilized and lived within throughout history.
These perspectives open the shutters on domesticity, by showing how patterns of homemaking can reshape our conceptions of kinship, consumption and the everyday.
Holocaust Memorial Lecture 2018: Shaming with Images: German Responses to Atrocity Films, 1945-46
In collaboration with the Pears Institute for the study of Antisemitism, the IHR presents the Holocaust Memorial Lecture, which will take place on 31 January 2018.
For a long time, scholars have been convinced that films produced by the Allies documenting atrocities in the liberated concentration camps failed in their attempt to shame and re-educate Germans.
Starting with the premise that many Germans regarded the Allies’ screenings of these atrocity films as acts of public shaming, Ulrike Weckel explains how the dichotomy of success or failure oversimplifies the historical situation and discusses some of the complexities involved in understanding the attitudes and actions of the shamed.
