Group information:

A cross-campus initiative organized by Rachel Deblinger (UCLA, History) and Sari Siegel (USC, History), the UCLA-USC Holocaust and Genocide Studies Graduate Working Group aims to bring together graduate students from the Southern California Institutions with overlapping interests, in order to facilitate dialogue and further research across campuses and academic disciplines. After Friday’s research resources workshop at USC, our next meeting will take place at UCLA in the Fall of the 2013-2014 school year. We hope future meetings will support ongoing informal conversation and provide opportunities for participants to present papers, rehearse job talks, and engage prominent Holocaust or Genocide Studies scholars.
