Susan Suleiman, C. Douglas Dillon Professor of the Civilization of France and Professor of Comparative Literature (Harvard University)
Soon there will be no living survivors of the Holocaust, and therefore people not directly connected to the event must assume the full responsibility for representing it. The contributors of the book of the same title believe that this shift has broad consequences for narratives of the Holocaust. By virtue of being “after” the accounts of survivors, storytellers must find their own ways of coming to terms with the historical reality that those testimonies have tried to communicate.
Co-sponsored by Project Narrative and the Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures at Ohio State.
