Teaching Genocide Comparatively Workshop.

October 18, 2021 @ 4:00 pm MST

Location: Coor Hall 4403, ASU Tempe Campus.
Speakers include PHA President Sheryl Bronkesh, Professors Volker Benkert and Jason Bruner.
Holocaust education, and genocide education more broadly, is an area in which humanities
scholars and scholarship can make important contributions to civic education. While many U.S.
states include the Holocaust and other genocides in their history and social studies standards, there
are relatively few resources for high school teachers to teach these atrocities in a way that is
sensitive to the historical particularities of each genocide and provides their students with a
meaningful comparative framework.
In this event, we will briefly introduce a framework that we developed from an eight-year
interdisciplinary collaboration on genocide, including a short curricular framework for the
comparative study of genocide in public secondary schools. We will have a short presentation from
Sheryl Bronkesh, who has worked for years to mandate Holocaust education standards within
Arizona, and conclude with short presentations from student-teacher
