McDaniel professor to teach in Sarajevo

McDaniel College Associate Professor of History Paul B. Miller will spend the 2004-2005 academic year in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, through a Fulbright lecture and research program.

Miller will teach a history course on the Holocaust or on genocide at the University of Sarajevo; work on curricular development with the faculty of Islamic studies; and help acquire resources for the library.

The university's new curriculum will include course work on genocide and a possible course on "History and Memory," a course Miller has taught at McDaniel.

In addition to an overview of the rise of Hitler, Miller's course examines the evolution of the Final Solution, the killers' motivations, and the role of the church. Students look at how the Holocaust is represented in art, literature, and film.

Miller recently completed a documentary film on the controversy over the bombing of Auschwitz, They Looked Away.

Miller is spending nine weeks studying Serbo-Croation at Arizona State University before he travels to Novi Sad, Serbia, to study for three weeks at the Azbukum language center.

He will settle in Sarajevo this month before the semester begins in early October.
