Human Rights and Genocide

HISTORY 272

Analyzes the phenomenon of genocide from an interdisciplinary perspective, exploring the ways that violence intersected with gender, race, and religion. Combines the history of genocide with the history of humanitarianism, international law, and human rights, seeking to understand their successes and failures. In addition to the Holocaust, case studies might include mass violence in Armenia, Ukraine, Cambodia, Rwanda, and Sudan. An interdisciplinary approach will be utilized, seeking to investigate genocide and human rights from the heights of international law to the depths of the human heart, using tools of political science, literature, and history.
