Research & Student Opportunities

The Center for Holocaust and 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. For funding and other student opportunities, please check out our Student and Scholar Opportunities page on our blog.

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 MVHR Interdisciplinary Graduate Group pages for more information on these programs.
