Research Workshop Program Call for Proposals
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies invites proposals from individuals and institutions to co-organize research workshops in conjunction with the Mandel Center in 2021.
We welcome proposals for workshop themes from scholars at universities and research institutions in all relevant disciplines, including (but not limited to) history, political science, literature, Jewish studies, Romani studies, philosophy, religion, anthropology, genocide studies, and law.
Successful applicants will collaborate with Mandel Center staff scholars to design and co-lead a workshop at the Museum. Applicants may apply as individual co-organizers or on behalf of an institutional co-organizer. Participants for the workshop will be selected through an open Call for Applications drafted by the co-organizers in cooperation with Mandel Center staff.
About the Workshops
The workshops convene groups of 10 to 15 scholars for one or two weeks of presentations by participants on their particular research projects; workshop-based research using the Museum’s collections; and in-depth discussions of overarching research issues, priorities, findings, and potential future collaborative endeavors.
