The Center for Holocaust & Genocide Studies (CHGS) guides and mentors undergraduate and graduate students by organizing courses and workshops, offering grants and fellowships, and providing unique opportunities for interaction with leading experts in the field. CHGS also collaborates and shares expertise and resources with centers, departments and individual faculty members at the University of Minnesota, across the United States, and with international academic institutions.

While CHGS encourages research from all areas of Holocaust and Genocide studies, we specialize in the following subjects:

  • Post-mass violence scenarios and transitional justice
  • Remembrance, representations and memory politics
  • Holocaust art, literature and film
  • Antisemitism studies
  • Genocide and the media

CHGS welcomes undergraduate and graduate student involvement in the research, programming, and outreach work we do. Please check out the Badzin Fellowship and Holocaust, Genocide, and Mass Violence Interdisciplinary (HGMV) Graduate Group for more information on these programs. Contact us if you are interested in any of the following additional opportunities to become involved:
