Dear Colleagues, 

You are invited to the Institute for the Study of Genocide's 2017 Raphael Lemkin Book Award Ceremony  honoring ‘An American Genocide: The United States and the California Indian Catastrophe' by Benjamin Madley (UCLA).

Tue, October 17, 2017
5:00 PM – 7:30 PM EDT

Third Floor Lounge
Cardozo Law Institute in Holocaust and Human Rights
Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law
55 5th Avenue
New York, NY 10003

The ceremony will include a public talk with Professor Madley, as well as a discussion led by Professor Karl Jacoby (Columbia University).

The biennial Lemkin award is for the best nonfiction work that focuses on explanations of genocide, crimes against humanity, state mass killings and gross violations of human rights, and strategies to prevent such crimes and violations. The award committee chose ‘An American Genocide’ for its meticulous and exhaustive research, theoretical sophistication, and focus on bringing to light an important case of genocide that has received little attention in research and broader public discourse. 

Attendance is free but please register to attend here:

This event is cosponsored by the Institute for the Study of Genocide and the Cardozo Law Institute in Holocaust and Human Rights.
