A professor of history at the University of Maine and formerly professor of geography at Middlebury College, Anne Kelly Knowles is among the foremost proponents of GIS (geographic information systems), a methodology that bridges geography and history. Among her many books is the highly acclaimed Geographies of the Holocaust, a volume that she co-authored and co-edited. In her talk at OSU, Knowles will draw on survivor testimony and her extensive research on concentration camps and ghettos in order to explore “the power of confinement, relocation, forced labor, and the constant threat of violence to change the everyday worlds of Jews throughout Eastern Europe.”

This event will be co-sponsored by the OSU College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences
