GEOG 272 - Geographies of Mass Violence

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
Violence has been an integral part of the making of landscapes, places, and the world political map. This course examines theories of violence, explanations of why it happens where it does, and how mass violence has come to shape local, national, and international geographies. In doing so, it analyzes how violence becomes embedded in geographical space and informs social relations. The course draws upon various case studies, including incidents of mass violence in Rwanda, Cambodia, Vietnam, and the United States. Joseph Nevins.

Two 75-minute periods.
