Teaching about rape in war and genocide does not fit neatly within the conventional disciplinary boundaries that typically govern curricula and teacher training. The challenge, then, is how to teach in ways that take advantage of disciplinary expertise while still understanding that every disciplinary approach has shortcomings and none will be sufficient alone. This chapter illustrates how particular perspectives and disciplinary orientations enhance good teaching and sound learning about rape in war and genocide. It also shows how interdisciplinary approaches are necessary for that outcome. In addition, the chapter underscores that the teacher's individual identity and teaching style will greatly affect the impact on students.
