Learning About Human Rights - An International Experiment
This winter Stanford students in any discipline are invited to enroll in an experimental, 2-unit course that will put us in conversation with undergraduate students at the University of Wuerzberg, Germany and at UC Merced. We will be going through a common reading list and blogging with each other across the Stanford-based TeachingHumanRights.org website. The course will be led by Professors Heike Raphael-Hernandez at Wuerzberg, Nigel Hatton at UCM, and David Palumbo-Liu at Stanford. We will be reading texts on human rights, with a focus on race. Besides blogging together, we will create live chats. This is an absolutely unique chance to engage in an international discussion on rights and race, with invaluable perspectives shared beyond the physical classroom and national boundaries.
