PS 426 - Conflict, Peace, and Reconciliation in the Balkans

(3.00 cr.)

Explores the themes of conflict, peace, and reconciliation, using Yugoslavia and its successor states (Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, and Slovenia) to illustrate how collective memory, history, and trauma can create conditions ripe for conflict and violence, and present special challenges to attaining peace. Although the course focuses regionally on the Balkans, other comparative cases are used to illustrate key themes and concepts. Students have the opportunity to write a research paper on a course-relevant topic of their choice. Seminar-style with an emphasis on student-driven discussion. GT (Fall only) (Even Years)
