Tobias Lecture, Barbie Zelizer, "The Holocaust in Visual Memory"

This talk will examine how the Holocaust was covered by the news media at the time of the liberation of the concentration camps and how these images have continued to influence the way genocides are covered in the media. Professor Zelizer’s work focuses on the cultural dimensions of journalism, with a specific interest in journalistic authority, collective memory, and journalistic images in times of crisis and war.

This lecture is made possible through the generosity of Harry and Marjorie Tobias. Free and open to the public.
