Lecture: “Palimpsestic Memory, Ethics and Performance”
at Genealogy of Amnesia Symposium, November 8-10, 2018 (mumok, Vienna/Austria)
In this talk I will discuss transcultural memory in relation to ethics and performance. If a new ethics of memory must accommodate how we are bound to others’ voices, memory as performance means that individuals and communities also actively redefine themselves through this interaction.
Max Silverman is Professor of Modern French Studies at the University of Leeds. He works on post-Holocaust culture, postcolonial theory and cultures, and questions of trauma, memory, race, and violence.
