Gil Pasternak gives a paper in the workshop Photography of Victims: Interpretations, Methods & Multi-Directional Memory at the University of Nottingham (UK)

On 21 June 2019, Gil Pasternak contributed to the workshop Photography of Victims: Interpretations, Methods & Multi-Directional Memory, which he also helped organising in collaboration with colleagues at the University of Nottingham (21-22 June 2019). Gil delivered the paper “Our Interests or Their Wishes?: Doing Community Cultural Heritage in the Age of Digital Memory”. Drawing on fieldwork and a series of case studies from Israel, Gil aimed to think through some of the challenging questions faced by communities of suffering as regards photographic cultural heritage preservation and the creation of community photographic digital heritage. In doing so, he also considered the possible role academics/scholars may play in facilitating such projects, without compromising the wishes of the communities involved nor the value of the photographic objects and images as source materials for research.
