Multidirectional Memory and Postcolonial Studies – Michael Rothberg

In this talk, Michael Rothberg introduces his book Multidirectional Memory: Remembering the Holocaust in the Age of Decolonization, which has just been translated into German.

The translation appears in a moment of intensive debate in the German public sphere about colonial legacies, postcolonial studies, the relation between antisemitism and racism, and the place of the Holocaust in Germany’s memorial landscape. In addition to providing an overview of the book’s central arguments, Rothberg reflects on how the concept of multidirectional memory can help illuminate and address the current climate.
