IHGMS Faculty Fellowship 2018-19
1948: A Global History
In the academic year 2018-2019, the Institute for Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory Studies (IHGMS) at UMass Amherst will bring together an interdisciplinary group of scholars from the Five Colleges. This group of IHGMS Fellows will explore the topic of “1948: A Global History.” The project organizers are Alon Confino (director of the Institute and professor of History and of Judaic Studies at UMass) and Daniel Gordon (professor of history at UMass).
IHGMS Fellows will have opportunities to present their work in progress. They will also select and read together key contemporary documents. And they will interact with outside speakers—the group has a budget to invite guest speakers over the year. An international workshop at the end of spring semester 2019 will conclude the fellowship.
