ENGL 210 Honors English - Top/Holocaust/Anti-Semitism

SectionNumberTypeUnitsDaysHoursFacilityInstructorK-State 8
A10930REC3MWF9:30 - 10:20 a.m.ECS 231Friedmann, Roger ANone
In this section of Honors English, students will examine how the systematic destruction of European Jewry during the Holocaust sprang from a view widely held during the Middle Ages that Jews were agents of Satan intent on the ruination of Christendom and how these beliefs centuries later metastasized into various theories about a Jewish world conspiracy. Students will learn about this history as a case study of the enduring power of the rhetoric of conspiracy theories and the danger such rhetoric poses. While students are reading about the Holocaust and its historical underpinnings, they will do their own research, either in groups or as individuals, into the origins of a conspiracy theory they want to know more about. These could range from conspiracy theories about particular fast foods to theories about 9-11 to theories about the Holocaust being a hoax. The research will be conducted with the aim of entering a paper into one of the categories of Kansas State University’s Kirmser Undergraduate Research Awards. Consequently, students will receive instruction during this course on how to use our library’s many resources to conduct their own original scholarship. Reading for this class will include Survival in Auschwitz by Primo Levi, The Complete Maus by Art Spiegelman, and The Devil and the Jews by Joshua Trachtenberg as well as selected excerpts from Warrant for Genocide by Norman Cohn, Constantine’s Sword by James Carroll, and The Paranoid Style by Richard Hofstadter. The class will also watch the movie Schindler’s List and a documentary or two to be determined later..
