The Global Center for Religious Research (GCRR) is hosting the 2020 International eConference on Religion and the Holocaust. The purpose of this 3-day virtual conference is for academics, researchers, professionals, students, and the general public to discuss religion's involvement leading up to, during, and after the Holocaust. This year’s international academic conference will unite both established and new scholarship in order to promote important and unexplored fields in Holocaust studies. The goal is to ensure that lessons from the Holocaust remain relevant to the study of religion today. And because the conference is held online, scholars and students can attend from the comfort and safety of their own home at lower costs without having to worry about travel and lodging expenses.

Religious and/or Holocaust specialists, as well as researchers, professors, graduate students, and other scholars are encouraged to submit abstract proposals (200-500 words) to present at this year’s International Holocaust and Religion academic conference. All research presentations will then be published in an upcoming supplemental issue of the peer-reviewed academic journal, Socio-Historical Examination of Religion and Ministry (SHERM). Presenters can also feature and promote their own publications during the conference for free!

Presentations can take any number of forms, including hosting a discussion panel, interviewing a Holocaust survivor or specialist, presenting a research paper, teaching a classroom lesson, or leading a workshop. Presenters can even video record their presentation outside of the event, rather than host a live session, and then have GCRR show that video recording to conference attendees.
