Held at the Museum, from June 3-14, 2013, the seminar, will be led by Christopher Browning, distinguished professor of history at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Professor Browning specializes in the history of the Holocaust and Nazi Germany. His research has focused on the decision-making process that launched the “Final Solution” and the motivation of perpetrators.
Designed for university faculty from all disciplines who are teaching or preparing to teach Holocaust-related courses, the seminar will strengthen participants’ backgrounds in Holocaust history and ensure a firm scholarly grounding for Holocaust courses.
The seminar will consist of presentations on the history of antisemitism and the Holocaust, participant-facilitated discussions on classroom teaching methods, and roundtable discussions on teaching strategies across multiple disciplines. Presentations and discussions will include an overview of Holocaust history and topics, and new research findings for participants to incorporate into course syllabi.
Applications due February 25, 2013.
