Interest Groups

Interest groups are organized by IAGS members with support of the Executive Board. The below groups are created to offer an institutional body that can address the specific concerns and needs of identified collectives. Individual or Institutional membership in IAGS is required for participation in an interest group. If you are interested in starting a new interest group, please contact us.

Women’s Caucus of Genocide Scholars

The purpose of the Women’s Caucus of Genocide Scholars (WCGS) is to offer scholars and practitioners who identify as women or femmes a space to discuss matters of shared professional interest as well as institutional mechanisms to help one another succeed in fields that continue to be very male dominated and professions that lack appropriate gender representation and equity. For more information, please contact Emily Sample.

Emerging Scholars

This group defines an emerging scholar as: anyone preparing, in process, or within five years of earning their PhD; early career pre- or non-PhD track scholars; as well as young professionals within the first couple of years of their careers.
