Dear Colleague,

 The Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies at The University of Texas at Dallas invites you to join fellow scholars March 4-6, 2023, as we celebrate the 53rd anniversary of this important conference and continue the legacy established by Franklin H. Littell and Hubert G. Locke more than fifty years ago. This conference offers the opportunity to address the historical significance of the Holocaust through scholarship that is interfaith, international, and interdisciplinary.

 The central theme of the 53rd ASC is “(Dis)Continuities in the Third Reich.” 2023 marks the 90th anniversary of Hitler's rise to power, the 85th anniversary of Kristallnacht in November of 1938, and the 80th anniversaries of significant military losses and uprisings against the Nazis in 1943. The aim of this conference is to examine these major turning points in the history of the Third Reich, their impact on the persecution and systematic extermination of European Jews, and their subsequent remembrance. Proposals on related topics from all disciplines are welcome.

 Please email presentation proposals to with “ASC Proposal” as the subject by December 10, 2022. The proposal should include the title of the paper with an abstract of 250-500 words and a brief (150 word) bio and a short CV. Proposals may be for a panel, round table, or individual paper.

 Registration, which includes the cost of all meals served during the Conference, will open in January 2023 and will include a tiered pricing level:

  • Students/Retired Participants: $200
  • Regular Registration: $250
  • Late Registration (any registration after Feb. 15): $300

 There will be limited financial support available for graduate students and junior scholars. Please indicate in your proposal if you would like to apply for one of these awards, including how this conference will help you in your research and/or professionally.

Interested participants are encouraged to visit for more information or email Cindy Seton-Rogers at with any questions.
