Rosalux History // Der Geschichtspodcast der Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung

Im Podcast «Rosalux History» geht es darum, «Geschichte gegen den Strich zu bürsten» (Walter Benjamin).

CfP: New Edited Volume: Micro-Historical Perspectives on an Integrated History of the Holocaust

We are pleased to announce a Call for Papers for an interdisciplinary edited volume on new approaches to an integrated history of the Holocaust.

We seek to combine these perspectives in order to uncover connections that might not be so easily seen with a more traditional, singular approach.

What are means whereby artworks represent and transform the linkage between  mass and individual? What are the mutations undergone by the mass qua object of the social sciences?
