The international conference “Mass Violence and Its Lasting Impact on Indigenous Peoples – The Case of the Americas and Australia/Pacific Region” will convene Indigenous and non-Indigenous knowledge holders and scholars from around the world at the University of Southern California, which sits on the ancestral and unceded territory of the Tongva people. The conference will provide a forum for knowledge holders and leading and emerging scholars to present and discuss groundbreaking research on the topics of genocide against Indigenous peoples in North America, Latin America, and Australia/Pacific Region; the long-lasting impacts of mass violence on those communities until today; and the resistance, agency, and initiatives of Indigenous peoples from the Americas, Australia, and the Pacific Region to effect change. The conference, organized and hosted by the USC Dornsife Center for Advanced Genocide Research and cosponsored by the partners below, will foster an interdisciplinary and intercultural dialogue on these subjects across a wide variety of historical, geographic, and cultural contexts. Registration for the conference is free. The conference will be livestreamed on Zoom.
