2020 International eConference on Religion and the Holocaust

The Global Center for Religious Research (GCRR) is hosting the 2020 International eConference on Religion and the Holocaust. The purpose of this 3-day virtual conference is for academics, researchers, professionals, students, and the general public to discuss religion's involvement leading up to, during, and after the Holocaust. This year’s international academic conference will unite both established and new scholarship in order to promote important and unexplored fields in Holocaust studies. The goal is to ensure that lessons from the Holocaust remain relevant to the study of religion today. And because the conference is held online, scholars and students can attend from the comfort and safety of their own home at lower costs without having to worry about travel and lodging expenses.

Here are the details:

August 14, 2020, 10:00 AM – August 16, 2020, 4:00 PM MDT

Online links to be provided.
