>This proposed panel will examine the ways in 
>which the writer/survivor negotiates his or her 
>role in narrating the Holocaust. As Charlotte 
>Delbo tells her reader in the headnote to her 
>three-volume trilogy, Auschwitz and After, 
>ěToday I am not sure that what I wrote is true. 
>I am certain it is truthful.î Thus for a writer 
>such as Delbo, the purpose of testimony is both 
>to convey personal experience and to commemorate 
>silenced voices.
>
>This panel welcomes 250 word abstracts that 
>address questions of personal and collective 
>memory, or which seek to explore another aspect 
>of testimony related to this topic, such as 
>traumatic personal narrative or the place of 
>fiction in the Holocaust testimonial.
