House of the Wannsee Conference and the Moses Mendelsohn Center at the University of Potsdam.
The GIF Young Scientists’ Meeting aims to bring early career researchers from Germany and Israel together to discuss the post-histories of genocide and violent conflict from a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective. We aim to question the future of remembering and intergenerational memory transmission in an increasingly radicalized and digital world. We invite young scientists from multiple disciplines, including sociology, anthropology, education, social work, history, psychology, humanities and law. The workshop will be held at the Potsdam University of Applied Sciences and at the House of the Wannsee Conference in Berlin.
