Description

This volume presents insights from five years of intensive Holocaust, genocide, and mass atrocity education at Queensborough Community College (QCC) of the City University of New York (CUNY), USA, to offer four approaches—Arts-Based, Textual, Outcomes-Based, and Social Justice—to designing innovative, integrative, and differentiated pedagogies for today’s college students. The authors cover the theoretical foundations of each approach, and include faculty reflections on the programs, instructional strategies, and student reactions that brought the approaches to life across the disciplines.

Recommendation:
“Traver and Leshem provide a much-needed and comprehensive in-depth guide for those teaching about the difficult and complex topics of the Holocaust and mass atrocities at the community college level. Addressing fundamental curricular issues, this volume offers a wellspring of valuable insights into the complexities associated with teaching these subjects. I know of no other guide for community college educators of the Holocaust or mass atrocities as comprehensive and useful as this. This volume is an outstanding resource for those who desire to reflect deeply on these topics.” (Stephen Feinberg, former Director of National Outreach, Education Division, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, USA)
“As the Holocaust becomes a borrowed rather than living memory, fake news spreads far beyond Holocaust denial, and multi- and social media further decenter the written word, the importance of the arts for augmenting and enriching our intellectual understanding of mass atrocity only increases. This volume documents a wide range of creative yet critical engagements with the greatest horrors of our times, in the under-researched context of the community college. Attentive to outcomes as well as the construction of meaning, to spurring civic action as well as cultivating pro-social dispositions, this volume shows us how our increasingly diverse citizenry, heeding the failures of our recent past, will shape the twenty-first century.” (Doyle Stevick, Associate Professor of Education, University of South Carolina, USA)
