Khya Morton assists Professor Ernesto Verdeja with his research on the dynamics of genocide and, particularly, the relationship between types of ideologies (i.e political, cultural, and religious) and genocidal outcomes. As his research assistant, Morton examines recent publications in scholarly journals specializing in genocide and human rights studies. Morton’s analysis focuses on articles that offer conceptual clarification regarding why and how different ideologies have prompted historical and modern-day genocides. Through her collaboration with Professor Verdeja, Morton hopes to deepen her understanding of genocide ideologies as well as to explore how their findings could contribute to ongoing genocide discourse and prevention efforts.
