CFP: The Holocaust in History and Memory, Vol. 5 (2012): Euthanasia - The Killing of Disabled People by the Nazi Regime
The Holocaust in History and Memory
is a peer reviewed journal published by the University of Essex (United Kingdom). It is linked to the theme of the events organized each year at the University of Essex to mark Holocaust Memorial Day, but we invite contributions on all aspects of the history as well as the memory, memorialisation and commemoration of the Holocaust and other genocides. The journal takes a broad (i.e. inclusive) view of the term ‘Holocaust’ without losing the sense of its origin and the significance of the Holocaust for the European Jewry and the Sinti and Roma.
Vol. 5 (2012) will be published in December 2012. The main focus of this issue will be on the Euthanasia killings of disabled people by the Nazi regime.
We are inviting contributions on all aspects of Nazi euthanasia policy and practice; the history of Euthanasia killing centres; the memory and memorialisation of the Euthanasia killings after the end of the Nazi regime both in Germany and beyond; the inclusion (or lack thereof) of the Euthanasia killings in Holocaust school and university curricula – as well as critical reflections on how much our attitudes toward disabled people has changed since the Nazi period.
Papers should normally be no longer than 7,500 words. All submissions will be double blind peer reviewed.
For inquiries about or submissions to this issue, please contact the General Editor at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for submission of abstracts: 15 August 2012
Deadline for submission of articles: 15 October 2012
