Paul Jaskot: "A Plan, a Testimony, and a Digital Map"
Paul Jaskot, Professor of Art History and Director of the Wired! Lab at Duke University, will give a lecture on the architecture of the Holocaust. His talk will address how perpetrators thought of their building projects and how victims experienced these oppressive spaces. His lecture will also explore how recent methods in the Digital Humanities, particularly digital mapping, can be used to investigate plans and testimonies to raise new questions about the architectural and historical significance of the Holocaust.
This lecture is co-sponsored by the Department of Art & Art History and the Center for the Humanities.
