Dr. Charlotte Schallié presents the Mitchell L. and Miriam Lewis Barnett Lecture in conjunction with the 5th Annual Scholars' Conference. There will be a pre-event reception at 6:30pm with the lecture starting at 7:15 p.m.

“But I Live”: Three Stories of Child Survivors of the Holocaust (New Jewish Press, 2022), a collection of three graphic novellas, renders oral testimonies into distinct visual narratives. For each of the three novellas, a Holocaust survivor was paired with a comics artist to co-create a graphic narrative drawing on the survivors’ lived experience before, during, and after the Holocaust. In this presentation, Dr. Charlotte Schallié will provide insights into the process of co-creation, the notion of relational memory, and the importance of honoring reciprocity in survivor-led testimony sharing practices.

Charlotte Schallié is a Professor of Germanic Studies and Chair of the Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies at the University of Victoria (British Columbia, Canada). Her teaching and research interests include memory studies, visual culture studies & graphic narratives, teaching and learning about the Holocaust, genocide and human rights education, community-engaged participatory research and arts-based action research. Together with Dr. Andrea Webb (UBC), she is the project co-director of a 7-year SSHRC-funded Partnership Grant entitled “Visual Storytelling and Graphic Art in Genocide and Human Rights Education.”
