PLSC 385 - Nationalism, Genocide and Global Politics


In this course, students will examine the problem of genocide from the perspective of various global political actors and apply contemporary international and comparative theory.   Drawing on paradigms of nationalism, geopolitics, international law/laws of war and political history, students will explore the context of foreign policy formulation in response to genocide, femicide, and democide.  Additionally, we will examine and compare approaches to commemoration and justice seeking in states and communities which have experience as victims or perpetrators of genocide, with a particular emphasis on the role of traumatic history in contemporary mobilization of ethnic and identity groups.
