Primary Instructor:

The course’s primary focus is raising the awareness about the historical and global persistence of racism and politics of intolerance that informs the daily lives of citizens. The reading list consists of new writings on the Holocaust created in response to the contemporary recurrence of various forms of racism, anti-Semitism and right-wing politics in the Balkans and Eastern Europe. Students will be encouraged to think about the resurrection of racist rhetoric manifested in ethnic particularisms, strong anti-Semitic sentiments, and not infrequently, official anti-Roma politics.

Since the rise in racism in Europe is linked to the fall of Communism, the enlargement of the EU, global migrations, as well as a long economic crisis, students will be invited to make connections between these social processes capable of producing seismic shifts and creating the fertile soil for the dissemination of racist ideas. Students will be invited to think why texts about the Holocaust can be particularly instructive about the reemergence of racist ideologies that are resurrected at times of social crisis.

Students may override the time conflict for BCS 131. Please contact slavic@umich.edu for permission.
