Abstract

This FWO-funded postdoctoral research project examines how, why, and to what effect the memory of the Holocaust is invoked, mobilized, and represented in literary texts that connect the Nazi genocide of the European Jews with other exceptionally destructive, criminal, and catastrophic histories, such as slavery, colonial oppression, and other genocides.
