Reflections on Holocaust Memory: An Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Conference
18 March 2019
Humanities Research Institute, University of Sheffield, Upper Hanover St, Sheffield, S3 7QY


The British Association for Holocaust studies warmly invites paper proposals for its annual postgraduate conference. This year, the conference is titled “Reflections on Holocaust memory”; we hope that this theme will be sufficiently broad to encourage postgraduate scholars working in a range of disciplines, and on any aspect of Holocaust studies (and related topics) to make a submission.
The event will take the form of a one-day conference, which will comprise a number of panels delivered by MA and PhD students currently working in the field of Holocaust studies, organised according to theme. The day will also include lunch, and a keynote speech from Professor Sue Vice (University of Sheffield) on resistance and rescue in Claude Lanzmann’s Shoah outtakes.


To submit a paper proposal, please send a 300-word abstract and 150-word biography to bahs.pgconference2019@gmail.com no later than Friday 1 February 2019.


We will only accept paper proposals from those currently working at postgraduate level (MA, PhD) on relevant topics, but all are welcome to attend. Attendance is free for all; if you would like to register to attend, please send the following details to the email address listed above:


- Name
- Degree type (BA, MA, PhD etc., if applicable)

- Dietary requirements


If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the conference organisers (Emily-Rose Baker and Michael Holden) at the above email address.
