The Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Clark University, Worcester, Massachusetts, U.S.A. seeks applications to its doctoral program in Holocaust History and Genocide Studies. Applications from any country are welcome.

The Strassler Center is a forum for education and scholarship about the Holocaust, the Armenian Genocide, and other genocides around the world. Dedicated to teaching, research, and public service, the Center trains the Holocaust historians and genocide studies scholars of the future—the next cadre of professors, teachers, Holocaust museum directors and curators, and non-governmental organization and government agency experts-about genocide and genocidal situations. In addition to our interdisciplinary faculty from eight departments, the Strassler Center is growing and will include faculty expertise, beginning in fall 2021, in Holocaust Pedagogy and Antisemitism Studies as well as Genocide Studies and Genocide Prevention.


The deadline for applications to the program is 15 January 2021.  Further information and the application are online:

Doctoral students receive a full tuition subvention and fellowship support in the form of an annual living stipend and research bursary throughout the five years of the Ph.D. program. Questions may be directed to or to me,
