Back from spring break
Last week was spring break. So I did not have any classes. This week I have had three classes so far. In my Politics of Genocide course I played the Dead Kennedy's Holiday in Cambodia. I thought it was a creative pedagogical tool. But, I am not sure if they got anything out of the song or not. In my Migration and Borders class I covered the 1948 ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians. Finally, in my Political History of the USSR class I covered the years between 1938 and 1941. In particular, I covered the Soviet annexation of Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Eastern Poland, and Bessarabia.
