The 49th Annual Scholars’ Conference on the Holocaust and the Churches
The Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies at The University of Texas at Dallas
Call for Papers
The Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies at The University of Texas at Dallas invites you to join fellow scholars March 2-4, 2019 as we continue the important legacy established by Franklin H. Littell and Hubert G. Locke nearly fifty years ago. This conference offers the opportunity to address the historical significance of the Holocaust through scholarship that is interfaith, international, and interdisciplinary.
The central theme of the 2019 ASC is “Conflicting Realities of the Holocaust.” 2019 marks the 75th anniversary of two important events: the liberation of Majdanek and the mass deportation of the Hungarian Jews. Liberation and death continued to coexist in the last year of the Holocaust. We now know with hindsight that these were the final months of the Third Reich, yet they still shaped uncertain and conflicting realities for the victims and perpetrators. The conference welcomes participants to revisit the Holocaust from the perspective of divergent realities and their representations either directly or indirectly. How did victims and perpetrators interpret these complex realities and how, if at all, did they inform their actions?
