Maiken Umbach and a team from History, Education, and Computer Science have been awarded a £711k AHRC grant to explore the significance of mass photography in Nazi Germany. We will analyse a large body of personal photos and albums to understand how politics and lived experience intermingled. With our project partners, the National Holocaust Museum and various schools, we will work to tackle the problem of the “perpetrator gaze” shaping our visual imagination of National Socialism and the Holocaust today, and will develop new exhibition designs, pedagogies, and a new Massive Online Open Course to bring other ways of seeing to the fore.
