My doctoral research at UMass Amherst builds on my MA work at Carleton University. It will look at how Nazi memory was presented in various types of media between 1983 and 2012.  In particular, I am interested in how emerging digital technologies allow for members of the German public to present their views on their country’s Nazi past.

By using government sources, materials from museum collections, and information from social media sites such as Flickr and YouTube, my project will examine how memory of the Third Reich evolved.  This will provide a lens into Nazi memory in divided and post-unification Germany, and will build on the literature on memory of post-1945 Germany.
