This course will address genocide throughout history within a clear definitional and analytical framework. Starting with an overview of the concept of genocide, we will address individual case studies and develop a definition that is useful for historians and other scholars by examining patterns and common features of genocides through the ages. This will involve the discussion and analysis of individual English-language sources and texts from the secondary literature. Classes will take place in English. Strong verbal and writing skills in English are essential for participation.
