This talk by Dr Noah Shenker provides a comparative analysis of Holocaust testimony archives, calling attention to the myriad ways that audiovisual testimonies, especially those of the Shoah, are shaped by the institutional histories and practices of archival repositories.
Noah Shenker is the 6a Foundation Lecturer in Holocaust and Genocide Studies within the Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation at Monash University.
In 2009 he received a Ph.D. in Critical Studies from the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts, completing his dissertation Embodied Memory: The Formation of Archived Audiovisual Holocaust Testimony in the United States.
During his doctoral studies he was the recipient of various fellowships including the Charles H. Revson Fellowship for Archival Research at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies.
From 2009 to 2012 he was a postdoctoral fellow at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, where he taught courses on Holocaust representation, global cinema, and Holocaust historiography.
