Dear all, China scholars and more,
I’m looking for participants and co-organizers for a panel to be proposed on the origins of China’s Xinjiang genocide and on the world’s failure to prevent it, for the “Frontiers in Prevention” 3rd conference, organized by the Institute for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention (I-GMAP), Binghamton University, April 17-18, 2020.
The deadline is Dec. 15, 2019. For more info see: <https://www.binghamton.edu/i-gmap/events-news/conference/2020.html>. In addition to scholars, a theme of I-GMAP is to include not only academics but practioner and activist perspectives, and collaborative perspectives.
My own thinking is that we should focus on the failures to notice the signs of buildup for the genocide before it was launched in 2017, and to discuss the specifics of China that may have made it more difficult to alert the world and mobilise preventive action to block the genocide. I will draft a panel abstract for your input. Feel free to write me off list with any suggestions.
