5.00PM - 6.00PM
Speaker: Dr Hannah K. Holtschneider
Venue: Pathfoot Lecture Theatre, University of Stirling
Join us for the University of Stirling's spring art lecture. This lecture will consider examples of visual engagements with the Holocaust and examine how spectators are encouraged to interact with these. We will seek to understand how works of art about the Holocaust create meaning, and communicate with the viewer about the victims of the Holocaust and their Jewish ethnic, cultural and religious identifications.
Dr K. Hannah Holtschneider is Senior Lecturer in Jewish Studies at the University of Edinburgh.
This lecture is part of the outreach events for the Anne Frank: A History for Today exhibition. In January 2015 and throughout February and March, the University of Stirling Art Collection will be hosting the Anne Frank: A History for Today exhibition along with sessions for visiting school groups and tours for members of the University and the wider community. For further details about the programme of events, please visit the Art Collection website at http://www.artcol.stir.ac.uk The Art Collection is open from 9am - 5pm on weekdays.
