MTSU Holocaust Studies Conference

Held on a biennial basis (with the omission of 2020 due to pandemic conditions), the MTSU Holocaust Studies Conference is an interdisciplinary scholarly event that brings together scholars from around the world and diverse disciplines to share their research with fellow academics, faculty, students, and the public. Each conference features an embedded theme while also accepting papers on any topic related to the Holocaust. A keynote or featured speakers present a talk on the theme, and survivors share their stories in a Friday afternoon event that is free and open to the public. Details and images from past conferences can be found on our Past Conference Highlights page.
