"The Missing Picture": Rethinking Genocide Studies & Prevention

The field of genocide studies is flourishing. It is the focus of academic programs, a multitude of conferences and workshops, international diplomacy, research centers, public policy, and a rapidly growing and increasingly sophisticated body of scholarship, including field-specific book series, journals, readers, and textbooks. However, this remarkable growth has not been without its problems. Like all scholarly domains, genocide studies has been formed from particular disciplinary perspectives and traditions, resulting in a disproportionate focus on a small canon of cases as well as a predominance of literature marked by Western perspectives.  Deadline for submissions is November 30, 2018.
