Comet Calendar

The Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies at The University of Texas at Dallas invites you to join fellow scholars as we celebrate the 52nd anniversary of this important conference and continue the legacy established by Franklin H. Littell and Hubert G. Locke more than fifty years ago. This conference offers the opportunity to address the historical significance of the Holocaust through scholarship that is interfaith, international, and interdisciplinary.

This conference will begin with an opening dinner on March 5th for presenters and invited guests. 
March 6th - 7th will feature presentations and keynotes by scholars from across the globe. 

The central theme of the 52nd ASC is “Expanding Perspectives of the Holocaust.” 2022 marks the 80th anniversary of the Wannsee Conference, where Nazi leaders discussed the logistics for the large-scale continental, European, and even global plan for the murder of the Jewish people. The opening of state and regional archives of the former Soviet Union has led to a deeper understanding of the scale and geography of the Holocaust. Indeed, Nazi leaders did not govern exclusively from Berlin, and victims experienced the Holocaust within numerous local, regional, and national contexts. Thus, Holocaust studies have come to promote a much broader and more varied history that exists in local, regional, national, and continental geographies.
