Call for Submissions: TEACHING ABOUT HUMAN RIGHTS Joyce Apsel (co-editor with Helen Fein of Teaching about Genocide, 3rd ed. 2003) is collecting syllabi (including writing and other assignments and short essays) for a new volume, Teaching about Human Rights to be published by the American Sociological Association. The goal is to include a broad a range of courses taught in different countries and from a variety of perspectives and to provide a needed resource with web-sites and bibliography sources for teachers who are designing courses on the subject. The editor is looking for courses currently taught in a variety of disciplines including sociology, history, literature, political science, critical studies, law, public health, philosophy, drama, psychology, art, and other disciplines as well as from an interdisciplinary perspective for both undergraduate and graduate students. The recent increase in courses on human rights and changes in the nature of courses taught range from comparative perspectives to focus on specific cases and from focus on human rights violations in specific areas to the challenges of humanitarianism. Courses in human rights are taught in a variety of area studies programs and in multidisciplinary programs such as gender studies, peace studies, legal studies and genocide studies. The editor encourages submission of present and recent course syllabi and other materials from teachers in various countries and disciplines.
