Atrocity Studies Annual Lecture

The annual Atrocity Studies spring lecture invites speakers from disciplines related to the intersections of history, memory, international human rights, and how we can use the lessons of the past to inform and improve our world.  The lecture is hosted by the minor in Atrocity Studies and the Practices of Social Justice, supported by Lauri ’77 and Jeffrey Zell ’77.
