IDRE’s Early Career Research Day recognized Anna Bonazzi and Lizhou Fan’s research, Language Use and Narrative Structures in Genocide Interviews via Digital Humanities, as one of the top four posters presented. More than 80 researchers participated in the poster session event with 40 high-quality research posters on November 20, 2019.
Bonazzi and Fan’s research aims to better understand genocide experiences by analyzing survivor tesitomonies’ language use and narrative structure with a digital humanities approach. They hope to preserve the validity of genocide victims’ experiences by adding quantitative data to the victims’ recorded stories. Bonazzi and Fan also intend to analyze and question the conventions of testimony as a genre influenced by Holocaust experiences.
