A. Dirk Moses, Ph.D., the Anne and Bernard Spitzer Professor of International Relations at the City College of New York, presents "How and Why Did Genocide Become the 'Crime of Crimes'?" He will speak in Benes Rooms A and B inside Ohio Wesleyan's Hamilton-Williams Campus Center, 40 Rowland Ave., Delaware. In his talk, Moses will explore, "What if 'genocide' had not become a distinct crime, and we had inherited the alternative of 'crimes against humanity' from the Nuremberg Trials?" He is the author and editor of multiple publications on genocide and memory, including "The Problems of Genocide: Permanent Security and the Language of Transgression," and he has been described as the "most original and provocative scholar writing on the problem of genocide." Moses also is the senior editor of the Journal of Genocide Research. His presentation represents Ohio Wesleyan's 2023-2024 Robert Kragalott Lecture on Genocide, Mass Atrocity, and Human Rights.
