Genocide and Survivor Communities: Agency, Resistance, Recognition
June 23 – 26 2024
Los Angeles, CA
(Deadline Extended! Submit applications by 15 October 2023)
The International Network of Genocide Scholars (INoGS) and USC Dornsife Center for Advanced Genocide Research invite proposals for the next biennial convention of the International Network of Genocide Scholars, scheduled for June 23-26, 2024, entitled “Genocide and Survivor Communities: Agency, Resistance, Recognition.”
Los Angeles is home to a multitude of large communities of genocide survivors and their descendants, including from the Californian genocide against Native Americans, the genocide against Armenians in the Ottoman Empire, the Holocaust in Europe, the genocides in Cambodia and Guatemala, as well as other instances of mass violence in the Americas and the rest of the world.
Given the setting, in addition to general interest on individual cases and comparative analyses of genocide, mass violence, colonial violence and genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity, a special focus of this conference is on the individual experiences, and perspectives of victims and survivors, not only in the aftermath of state violence, but during the mass atrocities as well.
