The series begins on Monday, October 18 at 3:00 p.m. (Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires time) and 5:00 p.m. (Bogotá time) with a keynote lecture by Prof. Dr. Ulrich Winter from Marburg University, entitled “The historical and the legal, the aesthetic and the media: how the Eichmann case has changed the way we look at our history“. The event will be held in German with simultaneous interpretation into Spanish.

The project is designed as a space for transnational and transmedia analysis of the Eichmann case and proposes to “explore the ways in which the political-historical, legal-normative, philosophical-anthropological and cultural-aesthetic discourses” of the case intersect, as stated by the project organizers. While these issues will be discussed in the virtual meetings, an on-site workshop in Buenos Aires next year will serve to analyse multiple cinematographic and literary narratives of the Eichmann case.
