Modern Genocide and Other Crimes against Humanity

1350 [CRN: 14870]

This course explores the emergence, evolution, varieties, underlying causes, and means of confronting and coming to terms with genocide and other crimes against humanity in the 20th century. We will discuss the origins of genocide and the subsequent conceptualization of this phenomenon; manifestations of colonial, imperial, racial, and communist genocide; war crimes and mass crimes by totalitarian regimes; and policies of mass expulsions and "ethnic cleansing." We will conclude with attempts to curb and punish genocide by means of international justice. M
