Talk: Jennifer Evans, Social Media and the Long Shadow of the Holocaust

     Jennifer Evans, a professor of History at Carleton University (Ottawa), defines her primary research interests as “the history of sexuality and visual culture, especially the role of photography and social media as agents of historical meaning.” She is an avid blogger and a primary shaper of “The New Fascism Syllabus: Exploring the New Right through Scholarship and Civic Engagement,” an online resource that is intended to provide curricular ideas and sources to university instructors. Dr. Evans’s many publications include Life Among the Ruins: Cityscape and Sexuality in Cold War Berlin.

     Professor Evans is currently working on a monograph that focuses on the intersection of social media and Holocaust memory. In her talk on April 7, she will discuss how platforms like Facebook are used to discuss the Holocaust – sometimes to minimize or even deny it, but often to spread knowledge of it and of the lessons that are implicit in it.
