HIS 4321 - History of Genocide

Credits: 3
This senior level course engages with the history of genocide, genocidal conflicts and the response to this “crime of crimes”. Students will familiarize themselves with the concept of genocide drawing on varied disciplines that seek to define the crime, and examine the historical processes that lead to genocide. We will examine several cases and study how and why genocides occur, the resistance to genocide and the creation of an international framework to deal with genocide and its aftermath. Utilizing texts, films, and other primary and secondary sources, students will understand the complexity of genocide in the modern world and the even more complex nature of the global response to it.
