Through these photos, we will also explore the thorny ethical questions about their place in publications, exhibitions, and the classroom. Photographs depicting violence and death will be shown during this lecture. Viewer discretion is advised.

    2020 Van Thyn Lecture 2 of 2

    Tuesday, Mar 3rd 7:10p to 8:00p
    "Five Shots from the Ravine: Photographs of the Holocaust in Ukraine, 1942" Dr. Valerie Hébert’s presentation examines a series of five photographs documenting the mass shooting of Jewish women and children during World War II. The searing content of the photographs makes them nearly unbearable to look at. Then why should we? Proceeding from the scholarship on memorial culture and practice, as well as from consideration of Jewish religious rituals around death and dying, this talk will discuss how and why we should continue to engage these images. Photographs depicting violence and death will be shown during this lecture. Viewer discretion is advised. March 3, 2020 7-8pm Free & open to the public Centenary College of Louisiana Bynum Commons, Whited Room
