The Shapell-Guerin Chair in Jewish Studies
at the USC Department of History
is launching a new speaker series:
Holocaust, Genocides and Race Relations in World History
“Rethinking the Relationship between Imperialism and the Holocaust”
The relationship between Nazism, the Holocaust and imperialism has been controversial since it was posited by Marxist thinkers in the 1930s. If antisemitism has since become the dominant paradigm for understanding the Holocaust, do “genocide studies” and the “new imperial history” offer tools to rethink this relationship?

He is the author of German Intellectuals and the Nazi Past (Cambridge, 2007), editor of Empire, Colony, Genocide: Conquest, Occupation and Subaltern Resistance in World History (Berghahn, 2008), Genocide and Settler Society: Frontier Violence and Stolen Indigenous Children in Australian History (Berghahn, 2004), and coeditor of Colonialism and Genocide (Routledge, 2007), and The Oxford Handbook on Genocide Studies (forthcoming).
