The Holodomor Research and Education Consortium (HREC) announces a fellowship to support attendance by a graduate student at the Genocide and Human Rights University Program (GHRUP) at the University of Toronto. This annual graduate-level course, which incorporates genocide theory, history, sociology, political science, anthropology, psychology, and international law, will be taught by thirteen leading experts over a two-week period, July 30 – August 10, 2018.
