Online Symposium | Holocaust and Genocide Studies: Looking Backward, Moving Forward

Holocaust and Genocide Symposium
Tuesday, 2 March, 2021

A hybrid expert symposium, 9 April 2021, Live stream from De Balie Amsterdam, the Netherlands

To mark the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the domain of Holocaust and Genocide Studies at EHRI coordinator, the NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies and at the University of Amsterdam, this symposium takes stock of the accomplishments of the past, and draws up a vision for the future.

One of the important aims of this symposium is to bring together the very sizeable and sophisticated body of knowledge in the study of war, genocide and Holocaust, and their respective intellectual communities, which up to now tend to remain bounded and distant from each other.

The event will have a hybrid form, taking place at De Balie in Amsterdam, but digital at the same time.

Key notes are by Carol Gluck, Amos Goldberg, Stathis Kalyvas, Sinisa Malesevic and Dirk Moses, and contributions by Nanci Adler, Jolle Demmers, Eva Kovacs, Omar McDoom, Kristin Platt, Ismee Tames and Uğur Ümit Üngör.
