Genocide Studies and Spain
The Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals (IBEI) and the Journal of Genocide Research are hosting a one-day workshop on “Genocide Studies and Spain” in Barcelona on Friday 22 November 2013. We are seeking scholarly contributions on any and all aspects of collective violence in Spain, whether related to the Franco period or to previous periods of large-scale social violence. We are open to submissions from all disciplines and are particularly interested in theoretically-oriented proposals that are grounded in empirical work, archival or otherwise. Abstracts (written in English, as proceedings are in English) should be approximately 300 words, accompanied by a CV and sent to Dr. Jens Meierhenrich (J.Meierhenrich@lse.ac.uk) by 31 August 2013. The event will be preceded by a public lecture by Paul Preston (London School of Economics) on Thursday 21 November.
The Local Origins and Memory of Genocide in Comparative Perspective
INoGS is co-sponsoring a study delegation to Poland and Bosnia in summer 2013.
The delegation will break new ground by exploring the local origins and memory of genocide in comparative perspective. It will first visit Berlin to establish the Holocaust’s historical context. It will then travel to Poland (Warsaw and Jedwabne) and Bosnia-Herzegovina (Sarajevo and Srebrenica). It will complete its mission in London to explore the human rights response of current political institutions.
