LIBS 643 - PARADIGMS OF GENOCIDE
The Armenian Genocide of 1915-1923 and the Holocaust stand as the quintessential instances of genocide in our time. This course will offer students access to the latest scholarship on Nazi Germany's war on the Jews and Ottoman Turk genocide against the Armenians. Whenever possible, original sources and eyewitness accounts will be consulted. At every juncture, problems of interpretation will be brought to the attention of participants. In keeping with the comparative nature of the course, linkages to the genocidal situations of the post-War period will be brought into the discussion, especially the events in Rwanda, Cambodia and former Yugoslavia. The extent to which these events have altered the paradigm will be investigated. It is anticipated that in studying how the paradigm of genocide was established and has evolved students will achieve a greater understanding about the fabric underlying any problem in historical research. Even more, by placing the emphasis on the examination and analysis of primary sources, it is hoped that they will be guided in their investigation of controversial or emotionally laden subjects by scholarship as opposed to polemics and platitudes.
