The USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research is currently welcoming applications for numerous research fellowship opportunities for senior scholars, postdoctoral scholars, and PhD candidates from any discipline for research related to the USC Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive, which contains over 54,000 video testimonies of survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust and other genocides, including the Rwandan, Armenian, Guatemalan genocides and the Nanjing Massacre in China. These interviews were conducted in 62 languages and in 41 countries and cover the entire life history of the interviewees before, during, and after the genocide. As such, the archives can be used in research on any number of topics, and across a variety of disciplines.

This unique opportunity, the week spent as a group together at the Center, allows researchers to prepare the groundwork for future cooperative research grant applications.
