Across the globe, people are targeted for violence because of their identity, and these acts of violence can escalate to the level of mass atrocities. Effective prevention of mass atrocities requires that people in all sectors, fields and professions recognize risks and understand the role they can play in mitigating those risks and building societal resilience to identity-based violence. University faculty from all disciplines can play a role in introducing students to how their field of study and any career path can contribute to prevention.
The Institute for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention (I-GMAP) at Binghamton University has pioneered the Charles E. Scheidt Faculty Fellows in Atrocity Prevention program to engage faculty in a guided process of learning and exploration of the potential for their own disciplines to contribute to atrocity prevention. Fellows learn from I-GMAP’s faculty, staff and practitioner visitors and alongside faculty from a wide range of disciplines both within their cohort and from previous cohorts. The program culminates with each faculty member modifying one of their own courses to integrate an atrocity prevention lens through innovative and engaged pedagogical approaches.
The upcoming program runs from September 17, 2021 through April 10, 2022 (excluding winter intercession), primarily in an online and asynchronous format, with synchronous meetings at the start and finish of the program.
