IA 250 Atrocity, Genocide and Reparations

This interdisciplinary course studies the emergence of reparations as reaction to atrocities and genocide on a national and international level across time and place. It introduces conceptual nuance by focusing on the theoretical and practical implications of the emergence and development of nationalism for state violence. The course situates past atrocities historically and discusses cultural, societal and social reactions that have led to symbolic and/or material reparations. [GM1, GM2, SS, W]
