The Mark and Gail Appel Program in Holocaust & Antiracism Education
at York University


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.
