Violence has become a central feature of our social world, and despite the globalization of human rights and cries of “Never Again,” violence and genocide persist. This presentation will introduce you to the historical origins and legacies of contemporary genocide. Situating the Holocaust within a broad field of genocide studies, we will discuss the 1948 Genocide Convention — it’s definition and political challenges, the impact of Nuremberg in the wake of WWII, and the significance of labeling episodes of mass violence “genocide."
Presenter: Jillian LaBranche, MA, is a PhD student in Sociology at the University of Minnesota. Her research interests include political violence, collective memory, and post-conflict education. Her current research investigates how the naming of large-scale political violence conditions national historical narratives and how these narratives are taught in both Sierra Leone and Rwanda.
