Scholars to convene at Sac State for fifth Genocide Conference

Stages of Genocide More than 500 scholars submitted abstracts to Sacramento State’s fifth International Genocide Conference, happening Thursday, Nov. 1, through Saturday, Nov. 3, in the University Union.

Participants will ponder mass killings of the past and seek solutions of peace for the future. The conference was organized primarily by Boatamo “Ati” Mosupyoe, professor of Ethnic Studies and Pan African Studies. She grew up in South Africa during apartheid and lost family members to police killings.

“My focus all my life, as soon as I experienced tragedy, is to have a peaceful world, to forgive and reconcile,” she says. “Genocide is a somber and sad topic, but also can be hopeful. Essentially, people want peace. I don’t think we nurture that need enough. For me, creating a better world is possible.”
