Elizabeth Baer recently returned from two weeks in Namibia. In November 2017, she published a book on the Herero and Nama genocide entitled The Genocidal Gaze: From German Southwest Africa to the Third Reich. The University of Namibia Press issued an African edition of the book in August 2018 and Baer was invited to give a talk at the book launch, held during a conference on Memory and Museums at the university. While there, she also had the opportunity for archival research in support of her next scholarly project.
