The Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at the University of Minnesota will host a symposium entitled "Betrayal of the Humanities: The University During the Third Reich" on Sunday April 15 and 16, 2012, to take place at Mondale Hall (University of Minnesota West Bank campus). The symposium will examine the moral role of the university in today’s society and the mutation of academic ideals under National Socialism, when the German university system promoted Nazi ideology and helped the state eliminate its diverse community. Thirteen scholars, from across the U.S. and abroad, will examine core academic disciplines, including anthropology, philosophy, classics, Assyriology, theology, law, and music.
