Abstracts from projects and conferences pre 2015
Translating the Holocaust into fiction for young audiences
One Line Summary: This interdisciplinary paper explores ‘translation’ and ‘language’ by investigating the translation of genuine Holocaust experiences into fiction in order to provide a modern ‘language’ of the Holocaust for young audiences.
Memories of Hiroshima and Nagasaki: projected fictional landscapes based on the memory of nuclear holocaust
One Line Summary: Although Derrida termed nuclear war a 'non-event', the memory of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the wealth of nuclear literature made the ‘non-event’ strangely familiar; the aim of this paper is to examine the numerous ways the memories of the 1945 nuclear event are reposed and performed through the medium of narration.
Here is a diverse selection of past projects from 2010-2015.
These abstracts reflect the work presented at conferences. Some papers are connected and may be similiar as I presented different aspects of a piece of work at different conferences to test the theory.
Some of these papers I will return to at a later date and convert into journal pieces or chapters in edited collections.
Forthcoming projects build on much of this work.
I welcome collaboration; so if any of the pieces speak to work you may be doing I will be happy to hear from you.
