Syllabus:

At the heart of contemporary global conflicts are diverging narratives of the past. This project focuses on how differing understandings of history are linked to conflicts in the present. We shall look at a wide range of case studies, including: the Sino-Japanese War and the Japanese occupation of Korea, the partition of India/Pakistan and of Israel/Palestine, Stalinism, Fascism, World War II and the Holocaust in Europe. The project also explores the connection between 'memory wars' and the rise of political extremism. Designed to be highly topical, the focus of the project is not on the past but on the politics of history in the present. The project will deepen students' understanding of some of the great conflicts in the world today. This is not a traditional undergraduate course. It is a collaborative research project in which students participate as active researchers. Each student will choose a particular country or region to research. The student will then feed the results of his/her research into a collective pool of information which is shared by the whole class. On the basis of the information gathered by the students themselves, we shall address wider, theoretical questions about the role of history, memory and identity in the modern world.
