Section Information for Spring 2024

This course develops a critical understanding of human resilience, historical memory, and collective reconciliation. The dynamics of community trauma and healing are at the center of our semester-long inquiry.  We investigate how people in the modern era face legacies of civil conflict and systemic inequality after enduring war, human rights abuses, and other catastrophes created by tyrannical rulers. Case studies explore personal, national, and international perspectives, with a particular focus on South Africa and the United States. The class integrates discussion and lecture and culminates with student research presentations and papers.

HIST 387 008 is a hybrid section with weekly required face-to-face meetings and online live synchronous meetings.
