Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Gender as a Category of Knowledge

Gintare Malinauskaite

PhD Project:

Medial Holocaust Memory in Lithuania After 1990


Description of the Project


The aim of this research project is to analyze the representation of the Holocaust in the Lithuanian national media, documentary, and feature films. It analyzes how Lithuanian media has represented and staged the Holocaust since 1990. The focus lies on the identification of Holocaust discourse phases, actors, narratives, iconographies, and gendered memories in the Lithuanian media landscape. This research project will be a contribution to the development of Holocaust and cultural memory studies in Lithuania, which have never been executed in a medial framework, with a concentration on gender or a focus on film analysis.
