Master of Arts in Holocaust and Genocide Studies Study Abroad
The Master of Arts in Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Kean University periodically convenes a study delegation to sites where genocide occurred (lieux de mémoire). Delegations have visited Warsaw and Jedwabne in Poland, and Sarajevo and Srebrenica in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
The Master of Arts in Holocaust and Genocide Studies program is one of three graduate programs of its kind in the United States exploring
the historical dynamics and aftermath of genocide in our time. It
uniquely emphasizes the comparative dimensions of genocide in order to benefit from mutually informative research. The International Association of Genocide Scholars has joined the program is promoting the program’s study-abroad seminars.
Delegations meet in seminars with local leaders who strive to negotiate the aftermath of genocide. Leaders include witnesses, survivors, scholars,
curators, journalists, jurists, members of the clergy, political leaders, and human rights activists. The program’s graduate faculty create the
framework for the delegation by offering classes and videoconferences beforehand.
Degree candidates receive elective graduate course credit; other
Kean University graduates and students attending other universities will need to consult with their academic advisers. Seminar participants admitted to the program will receive full course credit.
