Humanities 3825 D 6.0 "The Holocaust
in Cross-Cultural Context: Canada, Germany, Poland"
It is a condition of acceptance into the Project
that participants from York enrol in the 6-credit course "The
Holocaust in Cross-Country Context."
The course will be listed for the 2013-2014 fall-winter
session. The course counts towards the majors in Humanities, European
Studies, Jewish Studies, and Religious Studies.*
Spaces in the course are reserved for Project members.
The instructors are Professors Michael Brown and Sara Horowitz
of York University, the Project Coordinators. Students must pay
the tuition fees for the course and buy books (except for the
Project reading kit) in the regular way.
Most of the work for the course is done during the
26-day European Field Study and 10-day Symposium in Toronto, but
there will also be course meetings, readings, and assignments
in addition. The kit of course readings will be available in the
late spring of 2013.
The major requirements for the course are: (1) keeping,
revising, and handing in a detailed journal of the Field Study
experience; (2) designing, researching, writing up, and (3) presenting
a curricular project on a topic of relevance to the Project; participating
actively in, and contributing to, Project activities. This means
being available from the Thursday before Reading Week 2014 through
the entire Reading Week.
We will discuss the course and its requirements
and approach during the orientation sessions.
* Education, German Studies,
and History may also give program credit for the course (this
will need to be negotiated on an individual basis); it may also
be possible to count the course as a graduate course.
