- Director, Ethics, Peace, and Global Affairs Program
- Society for Ethics, Peace, and Global Affairs Advisor
Jeff Bachman is a Professorial Lecturer in Human Rights and Director of the Ethics, Peace, and Global Affairs MA Program. His research and teaching interests focus primarily on critical genocide studies. His first book, titled The United States and Genocide: (Re)Defining the Relationship, was published in November 2017 by Routledge as part of its Studies in Genocide and Crimes against Humanity series. The book challenges the dominant narrative that portrays the United States’ relationship with genocide as one defined, in part, by its failure to prevent genocide, rather than by its contributions to the commission of genocide.
Jeff seeks to continue to contribute to the field of critical genocide studies by further analyzing the relationship between different forms of political violence, including genocide and war. His research also includes structural genocide—manifestations of genocide connected to systems of direct and indirect violence, such as land appropriation and environmental degradation, and economic and cultural imperialism. He received a book contract from Routledge for an edited volume on cultural genocide, which will include his contribution on international law, as well as other contributions from legal scholars, sociologists, and anthropologists on forced assimilation and settler colonialism, ecocide, cultural destruction, cultural resilience, and restorative justice.
