The National WWII Museum’s Jenny Craig Institute for the Study of War and Democracy in New Orleans is pleased to issue this call for papers for its Emerging Scholars Colloquium, “Confronting the Nazi Genocide: New Directions in Holocaust Studies.” This three-day program will take place at the Museum on September 6–8, 2023.
The Jenny Craig Institute encourages early-career scholars in all disciplines (ABD through PhD since 2020) to submit proposals that deal with the study of the Holocaust. The goal is to inspire new conversations based on cutting-edge work that will foster a growing community of researchers investigating World War II and the Holocaust.
Applicants will submit their paper proposals through the submission portal online at: Emerging Scholars Colloquium Program Application
The deadline for submission is June 30, 2023, at 11:59PM (CST).
The National WWII Museum’s mission encourages public engagement. All workshop presentations will be recorded (the question-and-answer sessions following each session will not be recorded) and may be made available to the public.
The Emerging Scholars Colloquium is a three-night, one-day, in-person meeting. Chosen applicants will be invited to three nights’ accommodation at the Higgins Hotel & Conference Center in New Orleans (arrival on September 6, departure on September 9). On September 7, presenters will meet their fellow colloquium participants and be provided passes to explore the Museum’s campus prior to the full day colloquium program on September 8. Accepted participants will have their three nights’ accommodation at the Higgins Hotel and some travel expenses covered in order to attend the colloquium.
