The 5th International Conference on Genocide
Theme: Forms of Genocide Across the Globe: Challenges, Responses and Accountability
November 1-3, 2018 at California State University, Sacramento, USA
Ethnic Studies Department at California State University, Sacramento, in collaboration with its partners invites individual paper and panel submissions for its 5th International Conference on Genocide.
This is the 5th time the Conference on Genocide is taking place at the Sacramento State Campus. The conferences solidify the legacy of our late Rwandan colleague Professor Alexandre Kimenyi, whose pioneering spirit and selfless sacrifice led to Sacramento State hosting the first International Genocide conference in 1998. The success of the initial conference was followed by the 2004 International Genocide conference, a 2007 National Genocide conference focusing solely on “Rwanda after the Genocide,” and another International Conference on Genocide in 2011. The Genocide Conferences also underscore our commitment to foster a university community that values diversity and promotes international understanding and goodwill.
This year’s theme: Forms of Genocide Across the Globe: Challenges, Responses and Accountability examines themes related to collective memory of genocide with a specific focus on genocide denial, international arrest warrants in the aftermath of genocides, revisionism; survivor’s testimonies; transitional justice, genocide prevention; ending impunity, prosecution and extradition of fugitives from mass killings. The conference explores ideologies that diminish the significance and severity of genocide in a form of historical revisionism in Rwanda and other genocide contexts such as Germany, Armenia, and Bosnia. Other areas include any aspect of Genocide in the 20th and 21st centuries, including the Jewish Holocaust, the Armenian Genocide, the Cambodian killing fields, East Timor, the 1994 Tutsi Genocide in Rwanda, The Genocide in Darfur, the mass violence in Burundi, as well as the Genocide of Indigenous people in the Americas. Papers that address mass killings in Indonesia 1965- 1966, East Pakistan, Godhra, and Rohingya massacres in Myanmar, will be considered. The 5th International conference will engage challenges, responses, and responsibilities ratified in Articles V and VII of the UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, in collaboration with countries like Rwanda and the international community in efforts to bring those involved in the 1994 Genocide to justice, and what has worked in the past and what new options can be developed to make efforts of post-genocide governments more effective.
We welcome papers and panels featuring individual case studies, historical investigations, conceptual approaches and frameworks, comparative studies, and practitioner reflections. We are especially interested in papers/panels that address one or more aspects of the conference theme, both broadly and specifically.
The organizing committee welcomes individual paper and panel proposals, provided a panel does not exceed 4 presenters in each panel. For individual papers, no more than 2 authors/presenters will be accepted for each paper proposal. Each person is limited to only 2 presentations, as individual or co-presenter in the conference.
Please submit an abstract that is 150 words (maximum) in length, CV (1 page maximum), and full contact information including title, institution, and email.
You will be notified of the acceptance of your proposal by email, including registration, hotel, transportation, and other related information.
Selected abstracts will be published in the final conference program and should be of publishable quality.
Proposals and presentations in English are preferred, but we may be able to accommodate French speakers.
Abstract Submission Deadline is: April, 27 2018

Memory, Identity and the Holocaust. New Studies and Methodological Problems
Deadline for Abstracts: 30 April 2018
Conference Date: 20-21 Sept. 2018
We are inviting paper proposals for international conference "Memory, Identity and the Holocaust. New Studies and Methodological Problems", Warsaw, 20-21 September 2018.
During this two-day conference we will discuss the links and connections between studying social identity, memory, and the history of the Holocaust, as well as the qualitative methods frequently used in these fields of research, particularly biographical and in-depth interviews. While studies devoted to these topics are often a source of inspiration for other researchers, their very interdisciplinary character means that there are few occasions for personal meetings and exchange of research experiences. The aim of our conference is to address this need. By creating an opportunity to present new studies and discuss methodological problems in a group of scholars whose work focuses on such themes, we hope to reflect on our research topics from a broader perspective.
The three main thematic clusters of the conference draw their inspiration from the work of professor Małgorzata Melchior, a long-time researcher at the Institute of Applied Social Sciences, University of Warsaw, and the Polish Centre for Holocaust Research at the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology of the Polish Academy of Sciences. Author of several monographs and articles that remain significant reference points for those interested in the sociology of identity, the history of the Holocaust, memory studies, and methods of biographical interviewing, professor Melchior has also been a mentor and supervisor for many young researchers. By organizing this conference we would like to thank her for many years of inspiration and to reassess and further explore the topics analyzed in her articles and important monographs: Społeczna tożsamość jednostki [The Social Identity of Individual] (1990) and Zagłada i tożsamość [Holocaust and Identity] (2004).
We invite papers related to the following topics:
- biographical and social memory,
- the social identity of individuals and group identities,
- the Holocaust: historiography, memory and the politics of memory,
- qualitative methodology and biographical interview as tools for studying identity, memory and the Holocaust.
The two languages of the conference are Polish and English (without simultaneous translation).
We will confirm whether papers have been accepted before 15 May 2018.
Organizers of the conference: POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews, the Institute of Applied Social Sciences of the University of Warsaw (ISNS UW), The Institute of Philosophy and Sociology of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IFiS PAN) and The Centre for Holocaust Research of the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

Genocide after 1948: 70 Years of Genocide Convention
Call for papers deadline: May 1, 2018
NIOD Amsterdam / Utrecht University, December 7-8, 2018
On 9 December 1948, the United Nations adopted the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. Despite this commitment to prevent genocide and punish its perpetrators, several cases of genocide have occurred since, e.g. in Asia, Africa, and the European mainland itself. Millions of people have been categorically murdered on account of their real or perceived group identity – national, ethnic, racial, religious, political. What kind of impact(s) did the Convention have, and what type of changes were relevant in the postwar period? This multi-disciplinary conference will bring together historians, social scientists, and others, to explore the causes, courses, and consequences of genocide from a global perspective. The conference acknowledges the differences between genocide as a legal, historical, and social-scientific concept, and intends to include a variety of approaches.
We welcome papers on different cases across continents and decades, as well as critical issues that relate to mass violence, including, but not limited to, for example, the context of post-colonialism, the context of the Cold War and the contemporary context; the context of war, civil war and insurgency; intrastate power dynamics and political polarization; forms and institutions of violence; political economy, demography, ecology and geography; ideology, nationalism and identity politics; perpetration and individual perpetrators, victims and third parties; democratization; non-state actors.
The conference will consist of six main themes:
- The concept of genocide and international law
- (Civil) war and genocide
- Genocide in Asia
- Genocide in the Middle East
- Genocide in Africa
We encourage both theoretical and empirical submissions. The conference will consist of a combination of formats, including pre-circulated paper sessions, public events, and book panels.
Abstracts for papers or panels (max 300 words) including a short biographical statement (max 100 words) can be submitted by 1 May 2018 to: email@example.com
