HIST 3861 - Remembrance, Commemoration and History: Holocaust Studies Field School


Credit(s): 3
Other Hours Schedule Type Field Work

This field school examines the history of the Holocaust as it is depicted in select sites of memory (e.g., museums, monuments and memorials, former camps and ghettos) in Europe and/or North America. At each of these locations, students will critically “read” what the sites tell us about the Holocaust and will assess these commemorative narratives against existing historical accounts of the Holocaust. Topics to be examined include nationalism; the Cold War and Holocaust memory; ”postmemory” and the Holocaust; Holocaust commemoration and “dark tourism; and the role of commemoration in Holocaust education.

Recommended Preparation: Any one of HIST 1103 HIST 2243 HIST 2263 HIST 3361 HIST 3365 , or HIST 3802 .
Note: Students will be responsible for paying all costs, including travel, associated with the field trip.
