This course examines some of the most terrible events of the twentieth century, events such as the mass murders of the Armenians (1915-1918), the European Jews (1939-1945), the Cambodians (1975-79), and the Tutsis of Rwanda (1994). Students will apply historical methods to address such questions as the preconditions leading to genocide; the relation of genocide to war, revolution, nation-building, and ideology; the motivations of perpetrators; the limits to victim's efforts at self-defense; the responses of the regional or world community; and the legal and political consequences of such acts.
