The Strassler Center will host the Fourth International Graduate Student Conference on Holocaust and Genocide Studies (April 12 to 15, 2018), in cooperation with the Research Institute of Contemporary Jewry at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem. The conference will provide a forum for advanced doctoral students and early post-docs to present their research projects to peers and established scholars. 

Professor of Anthropology Victoria Sanford (Lehman College, and Director, Center for Human Rights & Peace Studies, Graduate Center, City University of New York) will deliver the keynote address.

Professors Daniel Blatman and Amos Goldberg (Hebrew University), Dagmar Herzog (Graduate Center, CUNY), and Elisa von Joeden-Forgey and Raz Segal (Stockton University) will serve as discussants.

This interdisciplinary conference will reflect the full range of issues, concepts, and methods in current Holocaust and Genocide Studies. Accordingly, we invite pertinent applications from all fields and disciplines and from countries around the world. Students working on genocides and other forms of mass violence in Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Australia, and America as well as on the aftermath and collective memorialization of genocides are encouraged to apply. 

Interested applicants should submit for consideration 1) a short curriculum vitae (one page max.) including name, address, email, and telephone number; 2) the title and an abstract of your paper (approx. 300 words, one page max. in English), addressing your basic arguments and sources, and how they relate to your dissertation project (for instance: summary, proposal, or chapter of the dissertation); and 3) a brief letter from your advisor indicating your enrollment in a doctoral program or the status of your dissertation work.

The costs of accommodation, registration, and meals will be covered for applicants whose papers are accepted. We also anticipate offering stipends to defray travel expenses for participants.
