Workshop Description: Short Hair Detention: A Memoir of a Thirteen-Year-Old-Girl Surviving the Cambodian Genocide offers an intimate view of the Cambodian Genocide (1975- 1979) as experienced by survivor Channy Chhi Laux. Channy originally wrote her memoir to help communicate her experiences of genocide and survival to her children. Having completed her manuscript, however, she saw the value in sharing it more widely. This workshop with Dr. Alexis Herr, a comparative genocide scholar, will focus on how to use survivor testimony to educate about genocide and human rights.
