The Proximity of Evil: The Changing Face of Evil in Genocide from the Holocaust to Rwanda 94

April 8 | 4:00 p.m. | Lalumiere Hall 280

Dr. Sarah Gendron will present her study examining how cultural objects and practices (among them, talk radio, music, dance, film, cartoons, and poster art) have been strategically employed by genocidal regimes in order to cultivate ethnic or religious hatred but also how the surviving population later made use of these same practices in order to bear witness to atrocity and transcend the resulting trauma.

Dr. Gendron, associate professor of Francophone languages and literature in the Department of Foreign Languages, received a Rynne Fellowship from the Center for Peacemaking for her work during summer 2013. For more information contact, peacemaking@mu.edu.
