Holocaust Landscapes: The Spatiality of Death and Survival with Tim Cole

May 25, 2022
5:00 PM–6:30 PM

How does the concept of space enhance our understanding of the Holocaust? In this talk, British historian Tim Cole tells the story of the Shoah through an exploration of the landscapes that victims moved across in Europe. His exploration of the “Holocaust landscapes” shines a powerful light on the geographic dimensions of the Shoah.

Cole earned his Ph.D. in geography from the University of Cambridge with a study of the spatiality of ghettoization in Budapest and is a professor of social history at the University of Bristol, UK. A pioneering scholar of the “spatial turn” in Holocaust studies, he is involved in several collaborative digital humanities and creative technologies projects, including the Holocaust Geographies Collaborative. His many publications include “Holocaust City,” “Traces of the Holocaust,” and “Holocaust Landscapes.”
