Common elements of genocides are rooted in not only the dynamics of power (especially during colonialism) and war (often used as an advantageous state by perpetrators to be rid of a selected population), but also in the dynamics of race as seen through the rise of the eugenics movement. Using the readings and films, craft this essay to delve into these elements, using the case studies of the indigenous people and the Armenians. The interplay of societal restructuring and hierarchy based on race and often class are elements common to genocides. Develop your conceptualization of how race, class, and power have influenced these genocides. For instance: Perpetrators and victims often hold very different places in power structures. How does social and economic status influence outcome in genocide? What patterns do you start to discern between institutions of power (be specific) and the peoples they intend to eradicate? Use examples from your readings and films viewed to fill out your essay.
