The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum's Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies announces the 2012 Silberman Seminar: "Teaching the Gendered Experience of the Holocaust." Held at the Museum, June 4-15, 2012, the Seminar is designed for university faculty from relevant disciplines teaching or preparing to teach Holocaust or Holocaust-related courses. The Seminar will deepen participantsí understanding of the Holocaust through the perspective of gender, and will explore and compare points of convergence and divergence between male and female experiences in a variety of circumstances, including early persecution, the refugee experience, concentration camp life, life in hiding, separation and reunions of families, and survival in the post-war era. Co-led by Atina Grossmann (Professor of History, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, New York, NY), and Dorota Glowocka (Professor of Humanities, Director, Contemporary Studies Programme, University of King's College, Halifax, Canada).
