CALL FOR PAPERS

Thematic Issue of the Journal of Genocide Research (JGR)

New Perspectives on Soviet Mass Violence

The study of Soviet mass violence has for a long time been overshadowed by 
ideological disputes and battles of the Cold War. Even Raphael Lemkin, the 
self-proclaimed founder of the UN Genocide Convention and pioneer of the study 
of mass violence, was an ardent anticommunist and recommended the United States 
to sponsor an international special committee to investigate Soviet genocide 
(See Anton Weiss-Wendt?s article Ô??Hostage of Politics:Raphael Lemkin on the 
Soviet Genocide in the Journal of Genocide Research 7 (2005), Nr. 4, 551-559).

Furthermore, Ernst Nolte's apologetic comparison between the crimes of Hitler 
and Stalin that led to the West German Historikerstreit (historians' quarrel) 
in 1986 has further politically charged and complicated a serious academic 
investigation of Soviet mass violence. Since the end of the Cold War, a number 
of unbiased studies have broadened our knowledge about genocide, ethnic 
cleansing and other forms of mass violence in the former Soviet Union. However, 
several aspects as for example the deportation of the Chechens and other 
Caucasian peoples and the Ukrainian famine 1932/33 need more empirical 
research.

To foster the discussion on Soviet mass violence, the editors of the Journal of 
Genocide Research are therefore inviting papers for a thematic issue devoted to 
this topic. The editors welcome original and innovative articles dealing with 
all possible aspects of Soviet mass violence from the beginning of the civil 
war to the end of the Cold War.

Proposals (max. 2 pages) for papers should be submitted with a short 
biographical sketch by July 15 to both editors:

Dominik J. Schaller (dominik.schaller@uni-heidelberg.de)

J├╝rgen Zimmerer (j.zimmerer@sheffield.ac.uk)

The articles, which should be a maximum of 8500 words including documentation, 
will be due at December 10, 2008.

After initial editor screening, all submissions will undergo peer review.

Please share this information with interested colleagues!
