Lessons and Legacies X, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL
October 30-November 2, 2008
The Tenth Biennial Lessons and Legacies Conference, sponsored by the Holocaust Educational Foundation and Northwestern University, will consist of two plenary addresses, up to three roundtables, ten to fifteen panels, and up to fourteen workshops relating to recent advances in scholarship on all aspects of Holocaust Studies and pointing the way toward further research.
Interested scholars are invited to present proposals for individual papers or entire panels by October 31, 2007. Proposals should be sent by email to BOTH of the Program Co-Chairs for the conference: Professor Doris Bergen, University of Toronto (firstname.lastname@example.org), and Professor Alan Steinweis, University of Nebraska-Lincoln (email@example.com)
Panels normally will consist of three papers and a commentator or four papers and no commentator, although other formats are possible. Proposals should include a title and brief description of the panel as a whole, along with the names, institutional affiliations, contact information, paper titles and abstracts of all panelists. Proposals for individual papers will also be considered. Applicants will be informed regarding inclusion on the conference program by January 31, 2008.
Please note that the deadline for workshop proposals is the same as that for panels and papers, October 31, 2007, but that the addressees are different. Organizers of workshops should contact BOTH Dr. Suzanne Brown-Fleming, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Professor Donald Schilling, Denison University (email@example.com) regarding application guidelines and procedures.
Participants in Lessons and Legacies X will be required to register and pay a small fee in advance of the conference. To the extent possible, the Holocaust Educational Foundation will provide financial assistance for presenters at the conference, with priorities being graduate students, faculty at teaching-oriented colleges that do not provide research support, and foreign scholars who have unusually high travel costs. Please direct all inquiries about financial assistance to the Holocaust Educational Foundation, President Theodore Zev Weiss (HEF3@aol.com).
