Genocide and Human Rights

Registration for this class has closed.

This course offers a comprehensive analysis of historical and visual representations of genocide from the 20th and 21st centuries. We will examine various modern genocide case histories through the interdisciplinary study of the role of the media and memory. The course will focus on atrocity commemoration for each genocidal case, including the Armenian Genocide, the Holocaust, the Rwandan Genocide and the Bosnian Genocide, as well as other contemporary conflicts. These courses are offered for Central Valley high school teachers to expose them to genocide studies, human rights and comparative genocide education, so that each teacher can better serve their community and apply the case histories and content that they learned about to their high school curriculum.

This class is for high school teachers; students enrolled in Fresno State degree or credential programs may not enroll in this class.
