The Division of Academic Programs supports, promotes, and produces interdisciplinary scholarship and research about the Holocaust and its aftermath. Our programs include academic publications and public-facing writing, research fellowships and colloquia, lecture series, and collaborations with university faculty and students. We welcome scholars and the general public to events where we translate our rich body of research and scholarship into easily accessible resources.

We invite scholars, students, and the public to a wide range of events — webinars, lectures, workshops, seminars, and colloquia — that explore the interdisciplinary histories of the Holocaust and its aftermath.

We offer colloquia and fellowships for graduate students and scholars that support research, grant access to the VHA, and connect students and scholars with the USC Shoah Foundation staff, who share their expertise in working with our collections.
