This course focuses on the history of ethnic conflict and genocide in the twentieth century.

The goal of the class will be to develop analytical tools to distinguish the causes of genocides in the twentieth century. To give a global perspective to these problems, there will also be several weeks devoted to the mass murders committed by the Khmer Rouge Regime in Cambodia, the Rwandan genocide, and the current crisis in the Sudan.
