Event Date: 01/30/2014Event Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PMLocation: Iadarola Lecture HallDescription: CRS Ambassadors will be hosting Dr. Tim Horner, a professor in the Villanova Center for Liberal Education, who will be talking to students, faculty and staff about Genocide.
Dr. Horner teaches courses on genocide and conflict for the Center for Peace and Justice Studies as well as the Augustine and Culture Seminar. Even though his doctorate is in early church history and early Jewish/Christian relations, his research took a turn after the events of 9/11 to incorporate his deep interest in genocide. This puzzle of human behavior – organized mass atrocity - has become the focus of his teaching and cross-disciplinary research. He has been to Rwanda several times, both for his research on the 1994 genocide and with Villanova students on a summer course he developed.
