Genocide and Human Rights University Program Summer Institute for K-12 Teachers, Undergraduate and Graduate Students Minneapolis program: July 6-16, 2004; Toronto program: August 3-14, 2004 The Genocide and Human Rights University Program will take place July 6-16, 2004 at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and August 3-14, 2004 in Toronto. In collaboration with the International Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies and the University of Minnesota, this program analyzes genocide through a multi-disciplinary approach and provides the intellectual framework for understanding genocide and the human responses to it. The program explores the universality of the issues related to genocide and takes a comparative approach for understanding the Armenian Genocide, The Holocaust, the Cambodian Genocide and Rwandan Genocides, and more recent events with genocidal overtones. Other themes explored include the mass violation of human rights; women, children, and genocide; how to teach about genocide; issues of memorialization and representation; and possibilities of dialogue and reconciliation between perpetrator and victim groups. The program is taught by renowned scholars and guests, who include Taner Ak=E7am, Joyce Apsel, Vahakn Dadrian, Stephen Feinstein, Richard Hovannisian, Roger Smith, Eric Weitz, Barbara Frey, and Stephan Astourian. Special guest speaker includes Major Brent Beardsley (Canadian Staff Officer with the UN Peacekeepers in Rwanda).
