Royal Holloway, University of London, is home to the Holocaust Research Institute, which offers the United Kingdom’s only MA course solely dedicated to the field of Holocaust Studies. Research and teaching through the Institute is diverse, including as post-war fascism; colonial genocide; museum representations of the Holocaust; Holocaust literature and Israeli foreign policy. We welcome inquiries from potential graduate students in any area of Holocaust and genocide studies, including history, literary and cultural studies, philosophy, film and media studies, cultural studies and sociology. Academic research and discussion is at the very heart of the Institute; we organise a variety of events including termly research workshops, postgraduate seminars and conferences.
The Research Centre’s mission is to promote research into the Holocaust, its origins and aftermath, and to examine the extent to which genocide, war and dictatorship can be understood as defining elements in the history of the twentieth century. It is an international, interdisciplinary forum, bringing together researchers working on different aspects of the Holocaust in areas including history, literary and language studies, film and media studies, philosophy and sociology.
