Teaching about Genocide

Advice and Suggestions from Professors, High School Teachers, and Staff Developers.
(Volume 3)
Edited by Samuel Totten.

Teaching about Genocide presents the insights, advice, and suggestions of secondary-level teachers and professors, in relation to teaching about various facets of genocide. The contributions range from basic concerns when teaching about genocide to a discussion about why it is critical to teach students about more general human rights violations during a course on genocide, and from a focus on specific cases of genocide to a range of pedagogical strategies for teaching about genocide.

Samuel Totten, a longtime scholar of genocide studies and retired professor (University of Arkansas, Fayetteville), is the author of Teaching About Crimes Against Humanity and Genocide: Fundamental Issues and Approaches (Information Age Publishing, 2018). Over the past fourteen years he has conducted field work into crimes against humanity and genocide in the refugee camps along the Chad/Darfur, Sudan border, and in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan.

This is the third volume in the series Teaching about Genocide, published since 2018 with Rowman & Littlefield.
