29 March – 1 April 2012
The first conference in 2009 was a landmark event co-sponsored with the Center's partner institution, the Danish Institute for International Studies. Collectively envisioned by the Center's doctoral students, the conference provided a forum for these younger scholars to present original research to their peers and invited eminent figures in the field. By sponsoring such an international conference tri-annually, the students assume a leadership role in growing a robust international community of genocide scholars.
This conference was organised under the guidance of Kaloosdian Mugar Professor, Taner Akçam. The Strassler Center planned a fall 2011 conference, Beyond the Armenian Genocide: The Question of Restitution and Reparation in Comparative Review.
Past conferences include:
- Holocaust and Genocide in the 20th Century
- Democracy, Economy, and the Middle Class
