The Mandel Center announces the 2017 Curt C. and Else Silberman Seminar for Faculty. This year’s seminar will explore how Digital Humanities offers new opportunities for students and faculty to understand the history of the Holocaust and its representation. Participants will learn how to use a number of digital tools, assemble a variety of sources (in English) for classroom use, and develop strategies to incorporate these materials in different types of undergraduate courses. The seminar will be led by Rachel Deblinger, director, Digital Scholarship Commons at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and Paul Jaskot, professor of history and architecture, DePaul University.

Applications and supporting materials must be received by March 24. Applications can be sent to university_programs@ushmm.org. To view the full call for applications and eligibility requirements please visit ushmm.org/silberman. Decisions will be announced in mid-April.
