Call For Papers

The 48th European Studies Conference, which will be held on October 5-6, 2023, both online and in person at the University of Nebraska Omaha, welcomes papers on European topics in all disciplines.

Founded in 1975, our interdisciplinary conference draws every year participants from colleges and universities in the United States and from abroad.
Areas of interest include art, anthropology, history, literature, current issues and prospects in cultural, political, social, economic, or military areas; education, business, international affairs, religion, foreign languages, philosophy, music, geography, theater, and film.

This year we will also offer special panels on the following topics:
• Ancient Mediterranean & Near Eastern World
• Black European Studies
• Human Rights
• Holocaust and Genocide
• Medieval Europe

Graduate students are invited to apply for Award for the Best Graduate Student Paper in the amount of $250.

This year’s keynote speaker will be Dr. Tomaz Jardim (Toronto Metropolitan University), who will be presenting on "Ilse Koch on Trial: Gender, Violence, and Making the 'Bitch of Buchenwald'.”

Tomaz Jardim is Associate Professor of History at Toronto Metropolitan University, where he teaches on modern Europe, the world wars, and the Holocaust. Prior to his arrival at TMU, he taught at Concordia University in Montreal and held a fellowship at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC. His first book, The Mauthausen Trial: American Military Justice in Germany was published by Harvard University Press in 2012, and explores the role of U.S. military commission courts in punishing concentration camp perpetrators.

His new book, Ilse Koch on Trial: Making the ‘Bitch of Buchenwald,’ appeared on Harvard University Press in April 2023. It explores how gendered perceptions of violence and culpability drove Ilse Koch's zealous prosecution at a time when male Nazi perpetrators guilty of greater crimes often escaped punishment or received lighter sentences.

Deadline to submit an abstract for presentation is May 31, 2023. We encourage submissions via our online form or via mail to the address indicated on the next page.
