Explore modern-era genocide through its prototype, the Armenian Genocide. This full-day workshop will introduce print, video, and web-based approaches to teaching about the persecution and extermination of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire during WWI, and how it became the archetype for subsequent genocides. An investigation into the history, structure, and stages of genocide will be incorporated into the day's sessions, culminating in a discussion of genocide denial, its forms and long-term impacts.
The Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education is pleased to partner with the Genocide Education Project to bring this professional development workshop to campus. This program is generously funded by a grant from the Dadourian Foundation. Lunch and a certificate of program completion will be provided. This program is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required.
