2018 SSHRC Connections Grant

Our project grew out of a 2018 Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Connections Grant. The Visual Storytelling Colloquium & Workshop at Ravensbrück brought together scholars, artists, librarians, and students from around the world and consisted of a series of graphic novel & teaching workshops (schedule below). The full program can be found here: Visual Storytelling Colloquium and Workshop Program 2018 (PDF)

Title: Visual Storytelling Colloquium & Workshop at Ravensbrück Memorial

The Ravensbrück Visual Storytelling Colloquium and Workshop took place from November 12 – November 16, 2018. It brought together an international team of Holocaust scholars, graduate students, Holocaust practitioners and visual artists from Canada, Germany, and Israel.

The goals of the Visual Storytelling Colloquium and Workshop at Ravensbrück Memorial were to foster innovative interdisciplinary and intercultural discussions on Holocaust learning and teaching while encouraging a diversity of perspectives. Our aim was to approach Holocaust education from multiple disciplinary and community-engaged angles and embed it within a comparative human-rights based framework.
