Course content

This taught Master’s course, made up of four modules and a 12,000-word dissertation is set up to analyse and discuss the Holocaust and other genocides, particular with an eye to cultural representations and the impact of historic genocides on current international legislation and conflict resolution. The course thus attempts to build a bridge between the past and the present on more than one level: looking at historic genocides (such as the Holocaust) and how this influenced our current stance on issues such as conflicts and racism; but also by discussing the experience of the victims back then and now, for example by comparing child refugees in the 1930s and today.

The course is targeted at those who wish to develop their understanding of the history and nature of the Holocaust and other genocides. It is designed to lead into PhD work for those wishing to progress to further Higher Education, as well as leading to a range of professional roles linked to humanitarian issues, for example.
