CPEC 201 - Genocide and Modernity (4 Cr.)


This course will serve as an interdisciplinary introduction to the study of genocide in modernity. Its basic question is the following: is there something about the way in which we, as moderns, have decided to organize ourselves-politically, socially, and economically-that contributes to the prevalence of genocide in the past century and beyond? Spanning the disciplines of genocide studies, Jewish studies, philosophy, and history, the course will serve to give students the tools to understand what genocide is, why it occurs, and what we might be able to do to prevent it. Students will also gain the ability to conduct independent research by conducting research on a genocide of their choosing. Restricted to first-year and sophomore students or others with instructor permission. Shuster.
