Comparative Genocide

Dr. Lynne Fallwell

Assistant Professor, Department of History, Texas Tech University.

Dr. Lynne Fallwell is a historian of Modern Germany with a focus on the Third Reich/Holocaust and History of Medicine, as well as Comparative Genocide. Her first book, Modern German Midwifery 1885-1960 will be published by Pickering & Chatto in August 2013. Dr. Fallwell has experience as both an academic and public historian. In the mid-1990s she worked at the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial before joining a German non-governmental organization (NGO) in Sarajevo in 1996. Her experiences in Bosnia sparked her interest in genocide studies. Lynne has been at Texas Tech University for seven years. In 2011 she helped bring the US Holocaust Memorial Museum's exhibit, "Deadly Medicine," to Lubbock. This summer she will begin a new position, based out of the Honors College, as Director of National and Global Scholarships for Texas Tech University.

Dr. Fallwell's lecture was held in the International Cultural Center at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX, June 12, 2013. This event was cosponsored by the TTU K-12 Global Education Outreach and supported by a grant from the Center for Global Understanding.
