human rights events

FEB 1st
What is the role of empathy in teaching human rights? We'll discuss critiques of empathy from leading scholars and how we cultivate critical engagement with human rights issues without reinforcing the hierarchies that underlie many violations.

Join us from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 1, for readings and discussion with Joseph Slaughter, associate professor of English and comparative literature at Columbia University.

This pedagogy workshop will include short readings, presentation of teaching materials, questions and methodologies, and time for discussion.

Seats are limited. Register with Alexandra Moore.

The workshop will include a short preliminary reading, presentation of materials, methodologies and key questions, and time for discussion.
