The Eichmann Trial: 60 years

Between April 11th and December 15th, 1961, the trial of Adolf Eichmann, who was held responsible for his role in the murder of millions of European Jews, took place in Jerusalem. Eichmann had previously been captured by the Mossad in Argentina, where he had fled and gone into hiding in 1950, on the basis of information provided by Fritz Bauer, the Attorney General of Hesse. Our project attempts to initiate a transnational and transmedial discussion of the reception of the trial exploring how political-historical, legal-normative, philosophical-anthropological, and cultural-aesthetic discourses intertwine. The project consists of a digital event series on the international reception of the trial and a workshop in March 2022 on cinematic, media, and literary representations. The results are to be published in an anthology in 2023.

The ICEHO is proud to announce a series of global conversations on emerging themes in environmental history. Each conversation will involve an author talking to a colleague about a book that they have published. Following the introductory, conversational segment, the author and their interlocutor will field questions from the floor.

Given the global nature of these conversations, and our bid to be fair to all, the time slots in which the events are held will vary.

Recordings of the events will be made available as soon as possible after they conclude.

ICAS BOOK PRIZE 2021 – Specialist Publication Accolade

The book A arte romanesca do ator: Constantin Stanislavski na cultura do romance, by Prof. Henrique Guimarães got a Specialist Publication Accolate at the ICAS BOOK PRIZE 202.

They jury members wrote

“This is a robust, careful and innovative book. Certainly one of the best written texts submitted to the ICAS-Sephis prize in 2021. The publication is a contribution to the history of theater and art in general. In order to advance in what he calls a cultural history of theatrical practices, Henrique Gusmão revisits the work of the Russian director Constantin Stanilavski, resuming his contributions to a movement to redefine the work of this actor and the kind of theater he represents, as the son of the modern novel in early 20th century. In addition to the field of theater, Gusmão’s erudition allows him to explore the influence of literature in the emergence of new, less conventional relations between the text and the scene. Although the field of studies on Asia in Anglophone, Germanophilic or Francophone contexts does not always include studies on Russia, the committee considered the unique quality of this work and its relevance to the field in Portuguese and Spanish.”
