Course Description: This course focuses on a comparative approach to the modern phenomenon of genocide. It is based on the proposition that genocide can be studied from a comparative, critical and theoretical perspective, while simultaneously preserving the specificity and distinctive nature of each genocidal moment. Several genocides of the 20th and 21st centuries will be analyzed through media, technology, and visual culture. Additionally, this course will examine atrocity remembrance and commemoration for each genocidal case, including the Armenian Genocide, the Holocaust, the Rwandan Genocide and the Ethnic Cleansing of the Balkans.
