Human Rights in Global History
This introductory course places "human rights" into a global historical perspective. Students explore the religious, philosophical, and cultural foundations of our modern human rights system and study how individuals and groups have historically fought for greater rights protection. The course addresses the challenges involved in developing "universal" human rights norms and students consider the evolution of international human rights law through intersecting axes of inequality such as class, race, gender, and sexuality.
