The USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research invites scholars to its upcoming international conference "Digital Approaches to Genocide Studies", being held October 23-24, 2017 at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. The conference is co-sponsored by the USC Digital Humanities Program.
International scholars from many disciplines will be gathering to examine the relationships between digital methodologies, practices, ethics and contemporary Holocaust and genocide studies. How can digital humanities shape, challenge, or complement contemporary genocide studies and vice versa? The conference will investigate the ways in which digital tools and methods, new media, and information technologies can help us to challenge conventional wisdom regarding Holocaust and Genocide Studies by raising new questions, improving our understanding, deepening our analysis, widening our field of view, or pioneering new approaches.
Registration is required. To learn more and register, please visit the conference website.
