ANT 318 - Anthropology of Human Rights (3 cr.)


We take a critical anthropological perspective to gain insight into the socio-cultural development of human rights. We explore their historical, cultural, political and legal parameters at the local, national and international levels. Our questions include: What are human rights, what are their historical roots, and how did they become embedded in our collective consciousness? How has human rights thinking in law and practice developed institutionally? We consider how human rights are deployed as a medium of moral, social and political power.
