INTERNATIONAL GRADUATE STUDENTS’ CONFERENCE FOR HOLOCAUST AND GENOCIDE STUDIES

2009

 
 

The Strassler Center at Clark University is home to the world’s first doctoral program in Holocaust History and Genocide Studies. The plan for an international conference organized by and for students was collectively envisioned by the Center’s Ph.D. candidates. The organizers seek to provide a forum for students from around the globe to present original research on the Holocaust and other genocides to an audience of peers and scholars. Their purpose: to foster an international community of future scholars.
The conference also celebrates the centennial of Sigmund Freud’s visit to Clark University, the sole American University where he lectured. Freud, who famously escaped Nazi persecution, delivered five lectures at Clark as part of a series that recognized the University’s twentieth anniversary of graduate education. The doctoral conference honors Freud’s visit as well as an important milestone for the Strassler Center: our 10th anniversary of doctoral education.
