Global Human Rights Through Film and Literature

This course will examine visual and literary representations of human rights and humanitarian issues. Using both film screenings and written texts, we will examine the role of storytelling and imagery in the human rights movement and the continued interconnectedness of media and advocacy in some of today's most pressing human rights issues. This course will explore the history of human rights, how representations affect public recognition of rights and wrongs, as well as challenges and opportunities for advocacy. Case studies include Argentina, the Holocaust, Rwanda, and Cambodia.
