Students will discuss a timely topic in seminar with a faculty or guest professor. Course topics will be developed and updated as appropriate with current issues in the field.
Summer 2020: This course will focus on slavery as an aspect of genocide. Much of the course will be centered on the African slave trade and New World slavery. However, we will also consider other aspects of slavery and genocide. It is worth remembering that in the 1940s there were more people enslaved in Germany and German occupied Europe than had been enslaved in the United States in 1860, and also that some Nazi leaders were convicted and executed at Nuremberg for enslaving people.
