Thesis title:

Changing Spaces for Women’s Voices in Oral Histories of Holocaust and Genocide, 1945-2018

My thesis explores women’s experience of violence in the Holocaust and genocide, as told through oral historical accounts.  I plan to analyse the methodologies used to gather such testimonies, using the Holocaust, the Rwandan/ Cambodian genocides as case studies, together with practice-based research from national archives, non-government and community based organisations.
