"A Small Charge of Genocide: Racial Amnesia and Segregative Humanitarianism" poster

Benjamin Meiches is an assistant professor of security studies and conflict
resolution at the University of Washington-Tacoma. He is the author of The
Politics of Annihilation: A Genealogy of Genocide, which is forthcoming from
University of Minnesota Press. His work has appeared in Security Dialogue,
Genocide Studies and Prevention and elsewhere. He completed his doctorate at
Johns Hopkins University.

In 1951, the United Starts was formally accused of participating in a
genocide against African Americans by the Civil Rights Congress. The response
and repudiation of this accusation was so venomous and intense that it
structured institutional memory surrounding genocide and contributed to
the formation of racist practices in modern humanitarianism.
Please join us at the Department of Gender and Race Studies at the
University of Alabama for an exciting lecture presented by the Departments
of Gender & Race Studies and Political Science, University Programs, and the
Arts & Sciences Dean’s Office.

This lecture will be open to University of Alabama faculty, students, and the general public.
