About Humanities 21
Humanities 21 is an independent group formed out of concern for the continuing decline in resources allocated to English, History, Classics and Philosophy across Australian schools and universities, and the undervaluing of humanities graduates in the business world. We aim to help the Humanities receive a better hearing from educational funders, granting bodies and philanthropists, based on a greater recognition of their contribution to society. By promoting public programs and events in Melbourne through Humanities 21 eNews, and offering in-house seminars to Melbourne businesses, we’re working to bring humanities academics and research closer to the community.

Representing the Holocaust

September 27 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

| Free - $15
representing the holocause 3.02.51 pm

The Holocaust is widely represented in popular media as well as in traditionally ‘historical’ contexts, such as museums and archival spaces.

In this talk, Dr Noah Shenker engages with critical debates surrounding those representations, and questions why – in a period marked by a decline in the number of living survivors of the Holocaust – there has been a widespread proliferation of historical and artistic representations which document the experiences of survivors.  Central to this talk are issues pertaining to the aesthetic and ethical challenges of representing the Holocaust in film, television, and other popular media. TICKETS HERE.

Join us on Wednesday 27 September at the Tonic House basement, 386 Flinders Lane. Complimentary nibbles are provided and drinks will be available at bar prices. TICKETS HERE.
