12-14 October 2020, University of Southern California 

Organizers invite scholars and knowledge holders to submit proposals for papers, panels, posters, and alternative forms of presentation related to the theme of the conference. The conference, which is co-sponsored by the Indigenous Knowledge Institute of the University of Melbourne (Australia), will be hosted by the USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research and take place at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, which sits on the traditional land of the Tongva/Gabrieliño People. The conference will provide a forum for leading and emerging scholars and knowledge holders from around the world to present groundbreaking research on the topics of genocide against Indigenous peoples (especially in North America, Latin America, and Australia/Pacific Region), the long-lasting impacts of mass violence on those communities, and their resistance, agency, and initiatives to effect change.
