Questions concerning the scholarship of history and memory culture are once again the focus of public attention. After a period of globalization and institutionalization, Holocaust remembrance appears to be subject to profound changes. This talk attempts to outline the status and the present challenges in European, “Western” and global contexts. It will raise questions about the meaning of Holocaust remembrance in the increasingly diverse European “migration societies”, not the least during a moment of a perceived refugee crises in Europe, as well as evident Racism and ever growing Islamophobia; and at the same time, the global “competition” between memory of the Holocaust and the crimes of European colonial powers, as well as their relative place in European memory. These are not new questions, but ones that are increasingly relevant and controversial.

The lectures will take place on Zoom and the networking sessions on the interactive Wonder platform. You can register for individual dates or the entire series. Only registered participants will recieve the login information by email. You will receive a certificate for your participation afterwards.
