Human Rights Workshop: Current Issues and Events (21193). 1 unit, credit/fail. Conducted in workshop format and led by Hope Metcalf, Executive Director of the Orville H. Schell, Jr. Center for International Human Rights, the course will examine contemporary issues in human rights practice and theory. Guest speakers, including scholars, advocates and journalists, will present each week on a diverse range of topics in human rights. Expected topics this term will include refugees and displaced persons, the global supply chain and labor violations, the rise of state suppression of free speech, religion and human rights, and the human rights implicatins of the incoming U.S. administration. Readings are generally distributed in advance of each session. Students enrolled in the workshop for one unit of ungraded credit will prepare short response papers before several of the sessions and be responsible for asking the speaker a question at each of those sessions. The workshop will meet approximately every other week. H.R. Metcalf.
