Digital Approaches to Genocide Studies
October 23-24, 2017
The USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research is currently planning its 2017 International Conference “Digital Approaches to Genocide Studies” that will be co-sponsored by the USC Mellon Digital Humanities Program. International scholars from many disciplines will be gathering to examine the relationships between digital methodologies, practices, ethics and contemporary Holocaust and genocide studies. How can digital humanities shape, challenge, or complement contemporary genocide studies and vice versa? The conference will investigate the ways in which digital tools and methods, new media, and information technologies can help us to challenge conventional wisdom regarding Holocaust and Genocide Studies by raising new questions, improving our understanding, deepening our analysis, widening our field of view, or pioneering new approaches.
The conference will be held October 23-24, 2017, at the University of Southern California.
