Calendar   General
Location Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies at The University of Texas at Dallas
Date Sat, Mar 2 - Mon, Mar 4, 2024
Duration   3d

The Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies at The University of Texas at Dallas invites you to join fellow scholars March 2-4, 2024, as we celebrate the 54th anniversary of this important conference and continue the legacy established by Franklin H. Littell and Hubert G. Locke more than fifty years ago. This conference offers the opportunity to address the historical significance of the Holocaust through scholarship that is interfaith, international, and interdisciplinary.

The central theme of the 54th ASC is “There and Then, Here and Now.” This year’s conference invites presentations that look back on not only the history of the Holocaust but the ways in which its memory has been preserved and transmitted. Proposals on related topics from all disciplines are welcome. (Submissions are now closed, but you can see the Call for Papers here.)

The below keynotes and other presentations during the conference are open to the public free of charge, but pre-registration is required.
