29th ANNUAL CONFERENCE ON THE HOLOCAUST AND GENOCIDE
“Resisting Genocide: History, Culture and the Arts in the Holocaust and Beyond”
Millersville University of Pennsylvania
April 1-3, 2009
Millersville University of Pennsylvania announces the 29th Annual Conference on the Holocaust and Genocide. Over the years, Millersville’s Annual Conference has examined a number of important issues ranging from the role of Pius XII and the Vatican during the Holocaust to consideration of economic issues during World War II. While the Holocaust remains its frame of reference, the Annual Conference has recently expanded inquiry to include a comparative perspective and consideration of other venues of mass murder and genocide including the Soviet Union, Armenia, the Balkans, Rwanda and Darfur. The 29th Annual Conference will emphasize cultural and social themes of resistance to genocide as well as the archival and artistic documentation of mass atrocities and persecution as recorded by the victims.
The organizers of the Conference invite proposals for individual papers and panels. Individual proposals should include the title of the paper, the author’s name, postal address, institutional affiliation, curriculum vitae, and an abstract of no more than 200 words. Panel proposals should include the title of the panel, a chair, and no more than three presenters who would submit individual papers. Persons wishing to offer their services as chairs and discussants should indicate their affiliation and provide a brief resume. Hard copies of proposals should be forwarded to: Prof. Saulius Suziedelis, Director, Annual Conference on the Holocaust and Genocide, Department of History, Millersville University, P. O. Box 1002, Millersville, PA 17551-0302. Electronic submissions may be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposals must be submitted by January 15, 2009.
