HIST 186 - History of Modern Violence
A historical exploration of how violence and our understandings of it have evolved since the late eighteenth century. Various modes of violence examined may include collective acts such as warfare, terrorism, slavery, genocide, and ethnic conflict; and interpersonal violence such as child abuse, sexual assault, and street crime. Students connect changing forms of violence to modern historical forces such as industrialization, colonialism, racism, mass politics, and social movements. The course thus provides a way of exploring how an otherwise abstract category of human behavior, violence, is embedded in and defined by its historical time and place.
