Module overview

How has the Holocaust been represented? We will examine a range of responses to the Holocaust from the 1940s to the present day, including memoirs of camp survivors and experimental texts. Focusing on the limits of representation we will approach questions concerning memory, trauma and the aestheticization of horror through testimony, fiction, poetry and film.
