>11.04.2005-14.04.2005, Leicester
>Deadline: 04.06.2004
>
>A conference organized by The Stanley Burton Centre for Holocaust
>Studies to mark the sixtieth anniversary of the liberation of the
>concentration camps.
>
>KEY-NOTE SPEAKERS: Wolfgang Benz, Eveline Goodman-Thau, Peter Longerich,
>Michael Marrus
>
>The aim of this conference is to reflect on the significance of the
>Holocaust sixty years afterwards: to remember what happened, to review
>the present state of knowledge about it, to highlight deficits in
>current research on it, to assess how the post-Holocaust world has
>treated it, to explore how it remains latent in contemporary society and
>culture.
>
>As organizers we approach the issue of commemorating the Holocaust with
>the following considerations in mind.    The Holocaust is embedded in
>collective memory, even though the world seems to have changed in the
>past sixty years. Racism, dictatorship, expansionism - the tenets of
>Nazism - have become unacceptable in the western world; the Cold War has
>come and gone; a European political identity is slowly emerging; a
>globalized multi-culturalism has become the norm. Conversely, nothing
>has actually changed. Since 1945 crimes against humanity and human
>rights abuses have occurred throughout the world: in Europe, the former
>Soviet Union, the Middle-East, Africa, Asia, and South America. The
>Holocaust thus pre-figures a "death-drive" in contemporary culture: the
>idea that the ability to deliver death - be it through economic
>strategies, the politics of social alienation, terrorism, or war - is
>the supreme expression of self-affirmation.
>
>"Holocaust" refers to the destruction of the Jews and other persecuted
>communities during the Third Reich. It persists as a universal index of
>horror and suffering. However, its legacy proves intractable. On the one
>hand, the drive to get it universally recognised as a crime against
>humanity has been successful. It uniquely provides a model for the way
>that the persecution of religious and cultural belonging generates mass
>public condemnation. On the other, the fact that genocide and crimes
>against humanity proliferate, that "holocausts" are still perpetrated,
>points to a pathological rupture between knowledge and action, thinking
>and behaviour, the scope of cultural discourse and the conventions of
>political practice that compromises all attempts to come to terms with
>what the Holocaust actually was. It may well be necessary to remember
>history in order not to repeat it. But is it just coincidental that
>genocide continues to be practiced in a world that has never known so
>much history?
>
>As the conference organizers, we are inviting papers that will take a
>synoptic approach to provide insights that will address not just an
>audience of academic experts with a purely academic focus but a wider
>public of informed interest. The Holocaust is, after all, an issue that
>concerns everyone. Moreover, we aim to publish the proceedings of this
>conference in a volume intended to reach out beyond a purely specialist
>readership. We would request, in the first instance, an outline (300
>words) of the proposed paper by 4 June 2004. If the proposal is
>accepted, we will then request a draft of the paper to be sent to us one
>month prior to the conference. The intention is to circulate copies of
>all the papers to all the speakers before the conference begins, so that
>they address each other as well as the audience. Below, for guidance, is
>a list of the kind of topics the conference proposes to deal with.
>
>Please send the proposal by 4 June 2004 to The Stanley Burton Centre for
>Holocaust Studies, School of Historical Studies, University of
>Leicester, University Road, UK-Leicester LE1 7RH; or email it as an
>attachment to:
