THEO 7461 Human Rights Interdisciplinary Seminar (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

Students wishing to apply for the seminar should submit a brief statement explaining their interest (no longer than 250 words) to humanrights@bc.edu with the subject-line "Human Rights Interdisciplinary Seminar." Please include your Eagle ID and academic discipline in the application. The application deadline is Thursday, November 5, 2016. In the spring of 2017, the seminar's focus will be on the ethical, politico-legal, and psychosocial issues confronting those whose human rights are affected by torture, drones, sexual violence, forced movement, deportation and migration. The differential effects of rights violations due to power based on "gender," "race," ethnicity and economic resources will be critically examined. We will also explore refugee movement and migration and the contours of asylum and other forms of protection, especially in the context of humanitarian crisis, war, and grave forms of economic injustice.
