Editor's note.

We mark in this issue the twentieth anniversary of the genocide in Rwanda. A special section of this issue of the Bulletin, curated by Dr. Phillip A. Cantrell of Longwood University, is dedicated to examining new approaches to the problem of genocide in World History. The section opens with a careful consideration of the connections between imperialism and genocide and then moves into a discussion of "academic space" and the incorporation of the topic of genocide into the classroom. The section concludes with two annotated syllabi for world history courses that place the history of genocide front and center.

As always, the Bulletin seeks to publish "short-form" essays on all aspects of historical scholarship including pedagogy, research, or theory. Topics may include the prehistoric, ancient, medieval, early modern, modern, and contemporary periods. Articles may include model syllabi or assignments, if applicable. Or, if you would like to guest-edit a selection of essays on a particular theme, please contact me at

With all good wishes,

Jared Poley
