Emerging Scholars

The Emerging Scholars Initiative of the International Association of Genocide Scholars is tasked with deepening the association's relationship with junior scholars and students.  It is also hoped that, through the Emerging Scholars Initiative, the IAGS will increase its engagement with social media and the general public. 

The initiative seeks to encourage participation of emerging scholars and students in discussions and debates around genocide; to include them effectively within the work of IAGS; and to provide information and a forum for commentary on current events and academic developments of interest to genocide scholars and non-specialists alike; and particularly to create a fostering environment within IAGS within which senior academics can mentor emerging scholars and emerging scholars can support each other, too.

The 2017-2019 Emerging Scholars representative is Timothy Williams.
