This summer marks the tenth anniversary of the largest genocidal massacre in Europe since the Holocaust. To honor the memory of the more than 8,000 Bosnian Muslim victims of Srebrenica, the Institute for the Research of Crimes Against Humanity and International Law (University of Sarajevo) is hosting an international academic conference from July 10-14 in Sarajevo and Srebrenica. Cooperating institutions include the Yale University Genocide Studies Program, the Danish Institute for International Studies, and Genocide Watch. Scholars interested in presenting a paper at the conference are invited to consider all aspects of the Bosnian Genocide, including political, legal, social, cultural, and religious dimensions. Papers that examine the genocide in a comparative perspective are also welcome, and papers on Srebrenica itself are particularly encouraged. To submit a proposal, please send a short summary of the paper by March 15, 2005, to Professors Smail Cekic, Eric Markusen, and Paul Miller at the following e-mail address.
