January 31, 2018
full name / name of organization: 
British Association for Holocaust Studies

The fifth annual British Association for Holocaust Studies Conference invites scholars, educators and practitioners to submit papers on any aspect of Holocaust studies. Papers should relate to any current debates or developments in the field, and submissions are welcome from across disciplines. The BAHS conference is an opportunity for scholars and educators to engage in dialogue, and to acknowledge their shared project of promoting understanding of the Holocaust. As such we are interested in submissions of papers or workshops from practitioners involved in any aspect of Holocaust education or representation. Submissions from PhD students and early career scholars are especially welcome.

Individual proposals of no more than 300 words, and brief biographies of no more than 100 words, should be sent to no later than January 31st, 2018. We also welcome proposals for complete panels (of 3 papers) or for interactive workshops. We are particularly keen to hear from teachers and educators working at all levels who wish to propose workshops or panels on their experience of teaching the Holocaust, or who simply wish to indicate an interest in taking part in small-group discussions about educational issues.
