6th Biannual Wang Center Symposium: Legacies of the Shoah: Understanding Genocide, War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity
General Event Information
free but registration is required * see below for ticketing information
Dates and Times:
February 20-21, 12:00-12:00AM; (See website for complete schedule.)
Building on the strengths and commitments of PLU’s Holocaust and Genocide Studies Program, the 2014 Wang Center International Symposium acknowledges the Shoah as both an unprecedented event in human history and a measure for gauging the capacity of human evil; a measure applied retrospectively and prospectively in diverse contexts.
The event gathers scholars, artists and practitioners to explore the human phenomena of genocide, of war crimes, and of crimes against humanity. It seeks a complex understanding of the logic and implications of these behaviors as well as the wellspring of human resilience, resistance, intellectual, and creative response that meet them at every turn.
Legacies of the Shoah is an event made possible by the generous contributions of Peter and Grace Wang, the Benson Foundation, and the Norwegian Royal Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The event is free and open to the public however, space is limited and registration is strongly encouraged.
