Marianne Hirsch (Columbia University) with Michael Rothberg (UCLA)
Etta and Milton Leve Scholar-in-Residence Lecture
The 1939 Society Lecture in Holocaust Studies

This talk will consider how the vulnerable times of the Covid-19 pandemic prompt a rethinking of trauma and memory studies, and of their temporalities. Scholars and artists involved in memory studies have displaced the linear time of progress with the recursive temporalities of traumatic return.  How has the enlarged and suspended present we are living now, and our ever more uncertain and delayed future, prompted us to rethink earlier painful histories and their after-effects? This talk will consider several recent post-Holocaust photo-based art projects that allow us to theorize the “liquid time” of possibility and repair.
