Anne Frank: Holocaust, Memory and Performance Symposium
October 8 & 9, 2015
This symposium, taking place at The University of Texas at Austin October 8-9, will consider the cultural impact of Anne Frank as a symbol and conduit for grappling with the history of the Holocaust, as well as the crucial ways in which the arts and performance engender dialogue about Holocaust, bigotry, memory, trauma and representation. The symposium will bring together leading scholars, curators and performing artists whose work addresses the representation of this period in history through a variety of forums and fields. Symposium events will feature a keynote presentation from chairman and professor of Jewish Studies at Rutgents University, Dr. Jeffrey Shandler, as well as panels, artist roundtable discussions and workshops featuring Dr. Daniel Green (Northwestern University Department of History), Dr. Brant Pope (chairman of the Department of Theatre and Dance), Dr. Erika Hughes (Arizona State University School of Theatre and Film), Dr. Mary Lee Webeck (Director of education at the Holocaust Museum – Houston), Alexandra Zapruder, Dr. Robert Abzug (chair of Jewish Studies and Director of the Schusterman Center), Dr. Jacyln Pryor (Haverford College), Tamar Rogoff and Kristen Smiarowski.
Anne Frank: Holocaust, Memory and Performance is sponsored by Texas Theatre and Dance, the UT Performance as Public Practice Program, and the Schusterman Center for Jewish Studies.
