Dr Simone Gigliotti

Personal profile

Simone Gigliotti is Senior Lecturer in Holocaust Studies in the Department of History. At Royal Holloway, she is affiliated with the Holocaust Research Institute (as Deputy Director), the Centre for the GeoHumanities, the Centre for Oratory and Rhetoric, and the Conflict and Violence Terrorism Research Centre. 

Her research of late addresses the Holocaust's European and global transport histories (trains, ships, and foot movements) from organisational, maritime, environmental and multi-witness perspectives. Additional interests include digital curation, visual and object narratives, and incubating the Holocaust's maritime turn ("the Holocaust at Sea").

Current projects include finalising a monograph about Jewish refugees and displaced persons from Nazi-era to post-war Europe, On the Trail of the Homeseeker: the Holocaust and the Cinema of the Displaced. She recently completed two co-edited projects: The Wiley Companion to the Holocaust (2020) and The Holocaust in the 21st Century: Relevance and Challenges in the Digital Age (Lessons and Legacies, Volume XIV) (2021). 

Forthcoming publications include studies of networks of humanitarian relief provision for Jewish refugees in the Philippines during the 1930s and 1940s, and discovering the dispersed graphic design archive of German-Jewish refugee women in the UK and their illustrative work for Quaker global relief networks.
