Call for articles:
Holocaust and Genocide Studies is the premier forum for work on the
extensive body of literature and documentation on the Holocaust and
genocide. It features essays and reviews that cut across the disciplines
of history, literature, economics, religious studies, anthropology,
political science, sociology, and others. HGS also considers how insights
into the Holocaust apply to other genocides. Articles compel readers to
confront the entire range of human behavior, to contemplate the moral
dimensions of science and technology in our society, and to reconsider the
concept of state and the consequences of our methods of political and
social organization.
