A two-week seminar for 16 school teachers on the visual culture of the Holocaust.

The Holocaust left behind an emotionally powerful, aesthetically diverse, and ethically challenging visual landscape. The two-week Summer Seminar, for sixteen teachers from across the US, at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, ME seeks to enrich the middle school and high school curricula by investigating how history and visual culture inform each other when we seek to understand the Holocaust. "Visual culture” is defined as art objects, including photomontage, sculpture, painting, book art, and film, as well as more mundane visual forms, such as posters, flags and uniforms, and magazine illustrations. Led by art historian Natasha Goldman, PhD, and historian Page Herrlinger, PhD, participants will be introduced to teaching and viewing this topic through the visual lens and be encouraged to share their own teaching experiences and how they have confronted the challenges unique to the visual legacy of the Holocaust and genocide.
