So far this semester my genocide course has been my favorite. The intellectual level of the discussions have been quite high. Among other topics these discussions have addressed issues of international law, the intellectual infrastructure of racism, historiographical disputes and the problems of reconciliation and justice. So far we have covered Native Americans, Australian Aboriginals, the 1904 massacre of the Hereros in Namibia, and the Armenian Genocide. Next week we will be covering the 1932-1933 Ukrainian Famine (Holodomor).
