The Fifteenth Biennial Lessons and Legacies Conference, sponsored by the Holocaust Educational Foundation of Northwestern University and Washington University in St. Louis, invites scholars to submit proposals for participation in one of the six seminars.

Seminars (new to L&L 2018) bring together a diverse group of scholars at various career levels for three meetings over the course of the conference for sustained discussion of a question or problem. Each seminar will choose 9-12 participants from among the submitted applications.  Participants in each seminar will access a common syllabus of readings developed by the seminar convener(s) and submit position papers BEFORE the conference. Only those registered for the seminar will have access to the papers. Online access will be removed immediately after the conference. 

The full CfP and descriptions of the seminars can be found here. To apply for one of the six seminars, please go to the online form and submit a paper proposal of no more than 300 words along with a paper title and a 1-2 page CV. Seminar applications are due March 1, 2018.

Participants will be determined by the respective seminar convener(s) in consultation with the conference co-chairs. All applicants will be informed in March 2018 regarding inclusion in the seminar. Seminar papers must be available to post by September 1, 2018.

Questions should be directed to hef@northwestern.edu.
