HIS 3151 - Comparative Genocide in the Twentieth Century (3)


When Offered: Fall. Alternate years
This advanced course combines an analysis of conceptual approaches to genocide studies with an examination of specific twentieth century genocides. The examined cases include the Ottoman genocide of the Armenians, the Holocaust, the mass murders in 1970s Cambodia and 1990s Bosnia, and the 1994 Rwandan genocide. The course pays specific attention to the motivations of perpetrators, the role of mass media, and the international community’s politics of naming and intervention.
