The USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research invites proposals for its three research fellowships for advanced-standing PhD candidates: the 2021-2022 Margee and Douglas Greenberg Research Fellowship; the 2021-2022 Robert J. Katz Research Fellowship in Genocide Studies; and the 2021-2022 Breslauer, Rutman, and Anderson Research Fellowship.
Each fellowship provides $4,000 support and will be awarded to an outstanding advanced-standing PhD candidate from any discipline for dissertation research focused on testimony from the USC Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive and other USC resources.
The USC Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive is a collection of over 55,000 audiovisual testimonies of survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust and other genocides, including the Rwandan, Armenian, Guatemalan, Cambodian genocides, the Nanjing Massacre in China, and anti-Rohingya mass violence. The majority of testimonies are life history interviews in which interviewees discuss their lives before, during, and after genocide and mass violence. With interviews conducted in 65 countries and in 43 languages, testimonies capture both the individual experience of mass violence and the social and cultural history of the 20th century on a global scale.
