This Conference will be dedicated to the late Professor Arthur Gilbert, Ph.D. who passed away on September 13, 2021. Professor Gilbert joined the University of Denver faculty in 1962 and remained at the Graduate School of International Studies for 60 years.

His courses on genocide were essential and led to his insistence that the largely unexplored intersection of genocide and slavery must be critically examined. Roz Duman, founder and executive director of CoGG stated, “Art approached me many years ago telling me that there were articles being written about slavery and genocide, similarities and differences and asked if CoAGG would consider hosting a conference on the subject. I immediately said yes and in 2018 Art gave a passionate closing at our first conference. He lived to see his dream become a reality”.

Co-sponsors of the Conference are: JEWISHcolorado, Denver Urban Spectrum and Metropolitan State University at Denver/Department of Journalism and Media Production.
