Contemporary holocaust and genocide studies are marked by general critical divisions between "trauma theory" and "industry studies," and between arguments for positioning the Nazi holocaust (which includes but is not limited to the Judeocide) as a "paradigm case" for genocide studies and those for repositioning the Judeocide at the margins of inquiry, even to the point of rejecting it as any longer a meaningful category through which to understand either the Nazi holocaust or countless other, historically and geopolitically distinct global genocides. This panel invites papers which analyze these divisions and theorize their academic institutional enabling conditions, especially in terms of their political, ideological, historical, and critical significance for the intellectual future of literary and film studies.
