Call for Papers: Genocide Studies: Sound, Image Archive


The Genocide Research Group at Newcastle and Northumbria Universities invites contributions to a one-day workshop which it will host on November 8, 2013.

The group is keen to foster interdisciplinary approaches to the materials of genocide (archival materials, testimonies, diaries, sound recordings, film, photography, site-specific materials and other forms of evidence, legacy or commemoration) with an emphasis on sharing and transmitting expertise across disciplinary boundaries.

Topics concerning the legal and political discourses surrounding genocide (justification, legitimacy, illegitimacy, condemnation, silence, response of the international community) are encouraged.

Deadline for submissions: June 1, 2013

Please send Dr. Ian Biddle [ian.biddle[@]] and Dr. Beate Müller [beate.muller[@]] an abstract of 200 words, a short biography, and (where relevant) list of your publications in this or related areas. im
