Travel Study

Eastern Europe: Poland, Serbia, and Bosnia

Genocide in the 20th Century and Beyond

Last offered: Winter 2018

This 16-week class gives students an opportunity to not only study important historical events, but a chance to visit the sites of some of those events and meet and talk to people who were part of this history. Students will gain a greater understanding of some of the calamities of the 20th century (and beyond) by not only reading and discussing them, but also by visiting the locations where these horrors took place and meeting people who witnessed them and were part of them. Students will write several short papers regarding readings before they travel and will keep a journal during the trip, recording their reactions to the various places they visit and people they meet. (Prerequisite: one HIST course; and COMP 2000, COMP 2010, or COMP 2020)
