International and Interdisciplinary Conference:
23 – 24 September 2010, University of Leicester
A Contextual View of Holocaust and Genocide Denial
The School of Historical Studies (Stanley Burton Centre for Holocaust Studies) and the School of Law at Leicester University have established an interdisciplinary initiative to investigate denialism, but also other aspects relating to the Holocaust and to genocide. This conference is intended to be an initial meeting and appraisal of this field of research, but it will also facilitate the creation of a network of scholars and expert commentators who are interested in this field.
The Conference will discuss a wide range of aspects regarding Holocaust denial – from early developments of Holocaust denial to recent laws and trials in Europe. Furthermore, the conference will look into a number of case studies regarding the denial of other genocides and what options societies have to deal with genocide denial.
