HIST 116: Introduction to History: Holocaust

This seminar is an overview of the Holocaust, using a wide variety of historical sources such as several document collections, literature, films, and several complementary historical texts.  Weekly participation is expected, and students keep a lengthy journal as a means of class preparation and learning.  We also spend much class time discussing both the “nuts and bolts” of student research papers, and the content of these papers as well.  No prior knowledge is expected, just a willingness to work hard.
