Jewish Poland revisited : heritage tourism in unquiet places by Erica T Lehrer( Book )

13 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the end of Communism, Jews from around the world have visited Poland to tour Holocaust-related sites. A few venture further, seeking to learn about their own Polish roots and connect with contemporary Poles. For their part, a growing number of Poles are fascinated by all things Jewish. Erica T. Lehrer explores the intersection of Polish and Jewish memory projects in the historically Jewish neighborhood of Kazimierz in Krakow. Her own journey becomes part of the story as she demonstrates that Jews and Poles use spaces, institutions, interpersonal exchanges, and cultural representations
Curating difficult knowledge : violent pasts in public places( Book )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much of the literature on post-violent contexts addresses problems of transitional justice, memory studies, and post-conflict reconciliation.€This volume inscribes an innovative domain of inquiry, situating itself creatively amidst these discussions but building upon the literatures of museum and heritage studies.€The contributors (themselves€practitioners, artists, curators, activists and academics) draw from a broad range of geographical and theoretical material, €and€explore new ways of bearing witness vis-a-vis curatorial practice, heritage work and memorializing the past, to examine the challenges and limitations of such endeavors
Jewish space in contemporary Poland by Erica T Lehrer( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a time of national introspection regarding the country's involvement in the persecution of Jews, Poland has begun to reimagine spaces of and for Jewishness in the Polish landscape, not as a form of nostalgia but as a way to encourage the pluralization of contemporary society. The essays in this book explore issues of the restoration, restitution, memorializing, and tourism that have brought present inhabitants into contact with initiatives to revive Jewish sites. They reveal that an emergent Jewish presence in both urban and rural landscapes exists in conflict and collaboration with other remembered minorities, engaging in complex negotiations with local, regional, national, and international groups and interests. With its emphasis on spaces and built environments, this volume illuminates the role of the material world in the complex encounter with the Jewish past in contemporary Poland
Curatorial dreams : critics imagine exhibitions( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The volume explores the value of curatorial dreaming as an intellectual exercise in humanities and social science scholarship, presents this way of translating theory into practice as a form of public scholarship, and shows how exhibitions can be a method for conducting reflexive, participatory research and crowd-sourced exhibition criticism."--
