Testimony across the Disciplines: Cultural and Artistic Responses to Genocide

Course Videos

EN 101 English Composition I: Looking Inward, Looking Outward

Prof. Childers on her course's involvement:

"As participants in the NEH Grant, Testimony Across the Disciplines, our class will engage in dialogue with texts, visual art, and artifacts that bear witness to genocide, war, and oppression.  We will visit the Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center and create individual projects that merge academic research, creative expression, and personal reflection.

The poem by Dan Pagis, "Written in Pencil in the Sealed Railway-Car," is also significant to the questions we will be thinking about in the course: How can we speak about the unspeakable? How can we write about the unwritable?"
