The workshop will provide presenters with an opportunity to explore the internationally unique and growing research resources found at the University of Southern California. These include the Holocaust and Genocide Studies Collection at Doheny Memorial Library with over 30,000 primary and secondary sources; a Special Collection containing the private papers of German and Austrian Jewish emigrants from the Third Reich, including the writer Lion Feuchtwanger; and the USC Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive, a digitized and fully searchable repository of over 55,000 video testimonies of survivors and other eyewitnesses of the Holocaust and other genocides. Workshop participants will be invited to participate in a scheduled optional introduction to these resources.
The German Historical Institute’s Pacific Regional Office (GHI | PRO) contributes to bringing the Pacific world into the GHI’s research agenda. It helps to broaden the scope and perspective of the GHI’s established programs in North American and transatlantic history, German and European history, and transregional and global history.
The Pacific Regional Office aims to put an emphasis on research projects and scholarly programs that explore the interconnections of the Atlantic and Pacific worlds. At the same time, GHI | PRO takes up our institute’s long established interest in the history of migration and combines it with approaches in the history of knowledge, which has been a research focus at the GHI since 2015. GHI director Simone Lässig outlined the new concept of “migrant knowledge" in an essay (published together with Swen Steinberg 2017). Interdisciplinary by design, the program in migrant knowledge aims to foster exchange among scholars in fields such as history, migration studies, political science, and cultural studies. It also goes beyond academia by including experts in the governmental and NGO sectors in the discussion. Please visit our blog for more information and to join the network: migrantknowledge.org.
Papers will be pre-circulated to allow maximum time for discussions. The workshop language will be English. Please upload a brief CV and a proposal of no more than 300 words by September 15, 2021 to our online portal
Accommodations will be arranged and paid for by the conference organizers. Participants will make their own travel arrangements; funding subsidies for travel is available upon request for selected scholars, especially those who might not otherwise be able to attend the workshop, including junior scholars and scholars without university affiliation or from universities with inadequate resources.
