Hiding in Plain View: The Holocaust and Masculinities by Dr Bjorn Krondorfer

19 March @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Join Dr Bjorn Krondorfer as he discusses the Holocaust and Masculinities.

At the core of this presentation is the question of what can be learned when applying a consciously gendered approach to the historical, social, and political realities of genocide. Dr. Krondorfer will offer a few examples from the field of critical masculinity studies and Holocaust studies to illustrate what can be teased out of available materials and documents. The examples indicate what scholarship has accomplished so far. The talk concludes with suggestions for future trajectories in this transdisciplinary inquiry.

Björn Krondorfer is Director of the Martin-Springer Institute at Northern Arizona University. He is also the Endowed Professor of Religious Studies in the Department of Comparative Cultural Studies.
