Bystanders and Complicity in Nazi Germany and the Jim Crow South
United States Holocaust Memorial Museum – Although different in many ways, the history of racism in Nazi Germany and the Jim Crow South during the 1930s illuminates some universal phenomena that manifested during these distinct historical periods. Both periods can trace part of their roots to the rise of a new “science” of eugenics, which became an international movement that was used to give legitimacy to racial policies. Racism, including racial antisemitism, was the core element of Nazi ideology and the driving force behind the Holocaust. Racism also legitimized the continued subjugation and persecution of African Americans long after the end of slavery. It takes a critical minority of determined leaders with the support of an acquiescent general population to introduce and establish state-sanctioned racism, antisemitism, and violence. The extreme examples of Nazi Germany and the Jim Crow South show that the majority of the population in these two contexts witnessed the widespread persecution against a targeted minority and either actively or passively tolerated what they saw, thus enabling the continuation of persecution and raising pressing questions about the role of onlookers and the nature of complicity. This symposium brings together scholars, students, and community members to engage in meaningful dialogue on how, when, and why ordinary people supported, complied with, ignored, or resisted racist policies in two very different systems of targeted oppression and racial violence. This program is co-organized by the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and the Institute for Human Rights at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

23rd Annual Graduate Student Symposium in Art History
UAB Department of Art & Art History – The Annual Graduate Student Symposium in Art History, sponsored by the University of Alabama at Birmingham and University of Alabama Joint Program for the MA in Art History, will be held Friday, February 23, 2018, noon-7 p.m. at UAB’s Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts. Graduate students from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and the University of Alabama, along with grad students from neighboring universities, will present papers on a wide range of themes in art history. A free reception is scheduled for 5:15 p.m. A keynote address by Meryl Baily, Ph.D. will begin at 6 p.m. Dr. Bailey will be speaking about cultural heritage, art, and the law in a lecture titled, “Returning the Past: Cultural Heritage, Ethics, and the American Museum in the Twenty-First Century.” Meryl Bailey (PhD, UC Berkeley; JD, Harvard Law School) is Assistant Professor of Art History at Mills College in Oakland, California. A specialist in the Italian Renaissance, she teaches courses on medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque art, and seminars on art and the law. Dr. Bailey is particularly interested in the intersection of visual culture and criminal justice in Venice. Recent publications include “Punishment as Brotherly Love: Antonio Zanchi’s Expulsion of the Profaners from the Temple and the Venetian Conforteria” (Artibus et Historiae, 2016), and “Carrying the Cross in Early Modern Venice” (Space, Place & Motion: Locating Confraternities in the Late Medieval and Early Modern City, ed. Diana Bullen Presciutti, Brill, 2017). Her current research project examines Venetian painters’ collaborations with Flemish engravers in the late sixteenth century. Her work has been funded by grants and fellowships from the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation, the Charlotte W. Newcombe Foundation, and other organizations. The symposium is free and open to the public. A full schedule and list of paper abstracts can be found on the UAB DAAH website. UAB’s Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts is located at 1221 10th Avenue South in Birmingham.
