Call for Papers

Abstracts are invited from participants who would like to contribute to the BAHS Postgraduate Conference that will be taking place online on Friday 11th June 2021. 

The BAHS Postgraduate Conference will provide postgraduates with the opportunity to showcase their research to other academics in their field. This can include a summary of research aims and/or hypotheses, research methods, progress to date and how research will contribute to the academic field of Holocaust Studies. Contributors will also be invited to discuss any challenges that they have faced in the last academic year and ways in which these have been overcome.

We welcome abstracts from academics from a range of disciplines that encompass Holocaust studies. This may include, but not exclusively, history, philosophy, genocide studies, the representation of the Holocaust in multimedia, museum studies and narratives of the Holocaust. 

Abstracts of proposed papers should be no more than 300 words in length and should be accompanied with a short biography of the author. These need to be submitted to Karen Treby and Sophie Bayer, BAHS Postgraduate Representatives via email to:

Deadline for abstracts: Friday 26th February 2021
