Genocide with Ed Westermann @SoL Center

April 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$20

We will examine the issue of genocide from its historical roots as proposed by Raphel Lemkin and codified in UN Resolution 260 to its continuing development within contemporary discourse. Westermann will discuss the changing construction of genocide and the implications associated with the conceptual, legal, and definitional changes to the concept as proposed by some legal and academic scholars.

Dr. Ed Westermann received his Ph.D. in History from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His most recent book is Hitler’s Ostkrieg and the Indian Wars: Comparing Genocide and Conquest (2016). Dr. Westermann has published extensively in the areas of Holocaust and military history, and is the recipient of numerous research grants and fellowships, including a Fulbright. His current project examines the role of alcohol in the conduct of violence and in the perpetration of atrocity.

Pre-registration required.
