The 3rd Dr Jan Randa Conference in Holocaust and Genocide studies brings together distinguished keynote scholars, academics and postgraduate students from around the world. 

Join our visiting keynote scholars, including Ben Kiernan, Hasia Diner, Richard Bessel, for a Public Symposium on the following theme: 

Comparative Perspectives on Genocide: The Challenges of the Holocaust Paradigm

Roundtable discussions will address questions concerning the limits and possibilities of utilising the Holocaust as a conceptual framework for documents and understanding other genocides? Are the cultural, historical, and site-specific aspects of non-Holocaust events compromised in the process of adopting the Holocaust as a methodological paradigm? The symposium will also address other conference themes relating to sites and sources of history and memory: How do scholars and archivists incorporate sources encompassing memoirs, architectures and topographies, testimonies, photographs, and moving image footage, into the writing of the Holocaust in particular and genocides more broadly?

This event is sponsored by the ACJC and the Monash Institute for Public History
