Marianne Hirsch writes about the transmission of memories of violent histories across generations, a process she has termed “postmemory.” Her recent books include THE GENERATION OF POSTMEMORY: WRITING AND VISUAL CULTURE AFTER THE HOLOCAUST (2012), GHOSTS OF HOME: THE AFTERLIFE OF CZERNOWITZ IN JEWISH MEMORY (2010) and SCHOOL PHOTOS IN LIQUID TIME: REFRAMING DIFFERENCE (2020), both co-authored with Leo Spitzer, and the co-edited volume WOMEN MOBILIZING MEMORY (2019). With a group of scholars, artists, and community activists, she is currently directing the New York City based Zip Code Memory Project.
