|When:||February 10, 2012
4:00 PM–6:00 PM
University of Southern California
Join us for a two-day event devoted to a multi-faceted inquiry of memory and its manifestations in individual and public life.
Sponsored by The Dornsife Commons
Led by Dr. Dan Leshem, Associate Director of Academic Outreach and Research, USC Shoah Foundation Institute
The first part of this two-day event is devoted to the physical, and digital, aspects of the USC Shoah Foundation Institute's Visual History Archive. The Institute staff will introduce their digital archive of almost 52,000 video testimonies of Holocaust survivors and other witnesses. Participants will receive a hands-on tutorial on using the archive, as well as a discussion on the methodologies of its collection and analysis. After using the digitized archive, a tour of the physical archive will remind us of the materiality of memory. In this session, we consider our role as users of the digital archive, and how the Institute’s Visual History Archive can be integrated into the classroom and used across disciplines.
