Oxford Seminar

Teaching about Sexual Violence as a Weapon of War & Genocide

March 8-11, 2014
(Campion Hall, University of Oxford, UK)

An International Seminar 
Convened by Dr. Carol Rittner, RSM (The Richard Stockton College of NJ)
and Dr. John K. Roth (Claremont McKenna College, CA)

The seminar focused on how one teaches about the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and genocide.  The seminar is comprised of sixteen scholars from six countries, all of whom have written and taught about sexual violence in the context of mass atrocity crimes (e.g., the Armenian genocide, the Holocaust, the genocides in Rwanda and former Yugoslavia, and the horrific violence in Guatemala, Congo, and elsewhere).  In addition, two graduate students enrolled in Stockton College's MA Program in Holocaust & Genocide Studies also participated in the seminar.  The seminar was jointly supported by The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey and Misericordia University, Dallas, PA.
