Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies Presents

International Symposium - Comparative Genocide Studies and the Holocaust: Conflict and Convergence

4/6/17, 7:00 PM

About this event

The symposium will address the particular place of the Holocaust against the background of recent knowledge on genocide and mass violence across the globe delivered and disseminated by a new generation of historians, social scientists, and educators. We are specially interested in addressing debates about comparison and singularity, as they have unfolded with regard to the status of the Holocaust in the context of genocide studies in recent years. The symposium aims to foster an intellectual space for productive dialogue between scholars, curators and educators dealing with the Holocaust and with genocides in various context. Keynote Address will be the 2017 Ohanessian Lecture by Timothy Snyder.

This conference is presented for U of M students, faculty, and Twin Cities educators and curators. Registration is required. For more information about the daily schedule, please see the CHGS website.
