Testimony Across The Disciplines: QCC Students Respond to Genocide through Art and Writing

The 2014-15 Harriet and Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Center (KHC) and National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Colloquium, Testimony across the Disciplines: Cultural and Artistic Responses to Genocide, was a student-centered, large-scale interdisciplinary pedagogy project that integrated Queensborough Community College’s (QCC) cultural and academic resources amongst 300 students, 20 faculty members, 10 academic disciplines and 5 colleges. The pedagogy project both facilitated and documented QCC students’ research and cultural and artistic responses to genocide (and organized hate) through work with genocide scholars, Holocaust survivors, interdisciplinary research collaborations, writing workshops, and cultural/artistic immersions. The project culminated with a student-created capstone art/research exhibit at the KHC and a music, dance and poetry recital at the Queensborough Performing Arts Center (QPAC).
