The Digital Holocaust Memory project organizes a panel on the multiple tensions between Holocaust education and memory, and social media cultures. There is much hesitation about the limits of social media platforms for Holocaust memory and education. Whilst they are generally conceived as exemplary of Web 2.0’s participatory cultures, which can open up exciting possibilities for co-curation with potentially new audiences, trolling cultures and the rise in visibility of Holocaust denial and distortion online also suggests they might not always be the most positive spaces for productive dialogue about the complex histories of this past.
The event will be held online on
Monday 17th May from 1.30pm until 3pm (London, UTC+1).
As always the event is free, but participants need to register via eventbrite.
