Held at the Taube Family Learning Centre, IWM London, Lambeth Road, London, SE1 6HZ

We welcome paper and panel proposals on any aspect of Holocaust studies and from all disciplines. The conference will highlight the wide and varied nature of postgraduate study, often at the forefront of modern research. We are interested to hear from scholars discussing areas such as, but not exclusively:
• The Holocaust in comparative genocide studies
• The Holocaust in digital humanities
• Material histories of Nazi persecution
• Transnational studies of the Holocaust
• Refugees of Nazi persecution
• Witnesses to the Holocaust
• Geographies of Nazi violence
• Memorialisation, representation of, and public engagement with the Holocaust
• Theological, political and other responses to persecution
• The history and representation of the perpetration of mass violence in the Nazi era.

Both postgraduate-taught and postgraduate-research students are welcome to put forward papers. Scholars from all institutions are welcome with a few limited travel bursaries available. Please indicate if you would like to be considered for this.

Paper proposals should include a title, a 200 word abstract and short biography of the speaker in a single MS Word document; whilst panel proposals should consist of three papers, and should outline clearly the approach that they plan to take.

All proposals should be sent to by end of day Friday 8th April 2022
