Overview

The fellowship will be awarded to an outstanding postdoctoral scholar from any discipline who will advance genocide research through the comparative analysis of testimonies by Holocaust survivors who gave interviews to both the Fortunoff Video Archive and the USC Shoah Foundation. There are over 1,000 survivors who gave interviews to both archives. Potential comparisons can include not only the content of the testimonies, but also the interview process, methodology, etc. The recipient will be expected to split the time of the residency between Yale and USC in order to receive deep introductions to both archives and to access additional unique research resources and archival materials at both institutions.
