Dr Jaime Ashworth received his Ph.D. from Southampton University in 2012 and a PGCE in Post-Compulsory Education from the UCL Institute of Education in 2015.
My interdisciplinary doctoral research explored the ways in which the Holocaust is represented in museums: specifically, Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, the Imperial War Museum in London, and the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum in Oświęcim, Poland. I look at the Holocaust as a Barthesian mythology: that is, progressively more a vehicle for the exploration of other issues than an object of study purely for its own sake.
I am also deeply concerned with Holocaust Education and commemoration. I work as a freelance educator for the Holocaust Educational Trust and also with youth groups, as well as in sixth form colleges. I am also available as a Private Tutor via Tutor Pages: for more information please either follow the link or look at my Independent Educator page.
