Annual Scholars’ Conference

Annual Scholars' Conference Logo

March 2 – 4, 2019

The University of Texas at Dallas
The Davidson-Gundy Alumni Center

Founded in 1970 by Franklin H. Littell and Hubert G. Locke, the ASC provides an invaluable forum for scholars to discuss and advance Holocaust research, ensuring the valuable lessons of the Holocaust remain relevant for today’s world.

March 2-4, we will host Holocaust scholars from across the globe to UT Dallas, the new and permanent home for the Annual Scholars’ Conference. This year’s theme is “Conflicting Realities of the Holocaust.”

The Conference will begin with a special dinner for registered participants and invited guests on Saturday evening. There will be two full days of programming on Sunday and Monday, so we recommend that guests from out of town plan on not leaving until after dinner on Monday.

Information about the 2019 Annual Scholars’ Conference can be found here.

Please continue to check back periodically, as we will be updating with new details as they develop.
