The Holocaust and Genocide Research Partnership (HGRP) is a research and public engagement consortium that comprises the pre-eminent collection of Holocaust-era documentation in Britain and a leading higher education institution: The Wiener Holocaust Library and the Holocaust Research Institute at Royal Holloway, University of London.
The HGRP aims to be the leading voice in the United Kingdom for research-led public engagement, education, and heritage practice about the history and memory of the Holocaust and genocide. It brings together scholars, educators and cultural practitioners in an unprecedented powerhouse of research-led public learning and understanding. It aims to build a dynamic and culturally inclusive research vision to ensure that public knowledge of the Holocaust and genocide is shaped by expert knowledge and survivors’ voices.
To achieve its mission, the HGRP will bridge the ever-widening gap between dynamic, interdisciplinary scholarship on the Holocaust and other genocides and public knowledge of these events through a series of collaborative research-led activities such as research projects, co-curated exhibitions, public events, seminars, conferences, research workshops, publications, and visiting fellowships
How will we do this?
The HGRP will deliver its mission through the following activities:
- Undertake and nurture new and dynamic scholarly research about the Holocaust and other genocides through joint research projects, fellowship opportunities, conferences, research workshops and other activities designed to support knowledge incubation.
- Share new research findings through publications, symposia, exhibitions, seminars, and public events. Online content such as webinars, skills workshops and other events will be an integral part of the offer.
- Enable and inspire the next generation of Holocaust and Genocide Studies scholars and practitioners to ensure a long-term sustainable vision for evidence-based public understanding of these subjects through teaching, research and learning opportunities.
- Provide expert-led commentary and advice in the fields of Holocaust and Genocide Studies to media, government, national and international research infrastructures, charitable organisations, educators, and cultural heritage professionals.
