ISLS 315 - Genocide: Origins, Prevention, and Punishment


This course addresses serious questions about mass violence, human rights, psychological, sociological, cultural, and economic sources of human cruelty, the responsibility of bystanders, and the very nature of evil. Through readings, class discussions, papers, films, and lectures, students consider what genocide is, why it happens, where it has happened, how best to prevent it, and how to deal with perpetrators. (S, SS)
