Project Description

In the Spring of 2015 Theatreworks will present a play on the topic of genocide: “Fallen Sparrow,” an original play by Professor Victoria Lichterman.

This site is a space for dialogue, reflection, and information exchange and is open to the City Tech community. The three main areas on the site are dedicated to 1) conversation (blogging), 2) bibliography of readings and links to information, and 3) suggested assignments for use in courses across the curriculum.

This collaboration between the Humanities and Entertainment Technology Departments is a wonderful opportunity to have curricular investigation into the topic of genocide. If instructors are able to incorporate the historical and ongoing issues of genocide into curricula by attending the plays and providing readings and writing assignments to students, we believe we can begin a conversation at City Tech that would serve our students, and our world. Please contact Profs. Victoria Lichterman, Sarah Standing, or Christopher Swift with additional lesson plans and sources on the topic of genocide and we will add these to the site.

“Fallen Sparrow” will be performed on April 1 (evening) and April 2 (club hours) in Atrium G38.
