Michelle Myers

Myers will enhance interdisciplinary collaboration on human rights by travelling to China and South Korea on a Peace and Reconciliation Study Tour to increase her understanding of the cultural and historical background of China, Korea, and Japan during World War II. Myers will expand interdisciplinary Holocaust programming to include the voices of Chinese and Korean victims by engaging in discussions with survivors, eyewitnesses, museum curators, historians, researchers, NGO activists, and attorneys.  Upon returning, Myers will link the lessons of the Holocaust and World War II in Asia to educate students about the atrocities committed during the conflict.
