International Conference – The Holocaust in Southeastern Europe
May 25, 2015 /// 00:00 – May 26, 2015 /// 00:00
The Elie Wiesel National Institute for the Study of the Holocaust in Romania and the Mandel Center are co-organizing an interdisciplinary conference on the Holocaust in Southeastern Europe. This two-day conference will bring together scholars from all disciplines working on the Holocaust in the Southeastern tier of Europe to share their research with each other and the public. The conference seeks to stimulate discussion and debate on current research on the Holocaust, and to foster interdisciplinary and transnational cooperation among scholars of the topic in the region. It will highlight new research in such areas as atrocities, mass killing, and mass graves; the radicalisation of local politics during Nazi occupation; forced and slave labor; the dynamics of complicity and collaboration; everyday life on the front and under occupation; plunder, robbery, and expropriation; refugees and displaced persons; understudied victims; gender; the cultural politics of representation and commemoration in the aftermath; contemporary Holocaust revisionism and denial, and manifestations of antisemitic and anti-Romani prejudice; and communities and identities forged around the experiences of war and genocide.
