Dr. Elizabeth R Baer author of "The Genocidal Gaze from German Southwest Africa to the Third Reich"
|Date||Wed, Feb 9, 6:00pm - 7:00pm|
In her book, Dr. Baer examines the threads of shared ideology in the Herero and Nama genocide and the Holocaust. Using concepts such as racial hierarchies, living space, and the final solution that were deployed by German authorities in 1904 and again in the 1930s and 1940s to justify genocide. The Genocidal Gaze is an original and challenging discussion of such contemporary issues as colonial practices, European and African race relations, definitions of genocide, and postcolonial theory.
This event will be moderated by Dr. Jeff Benvenuto from Gratz College. The Institute of Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Raritan Valley Community College is pleased to present this event along with The Mercer Holocaust, Genocide & Human Rights Education Center at Mercer County Community College.
