Primary Instructor:

What does it mean to be human? Does it mean one has a right to dignity? To equality? To housing, education, and a job? To be free from racial discrimination, or sexual harassment? This class will explore how being human grounds struggles for social justice, including human rights and humanitarianism. While the French and American revolutions changed the way societies were understood and organized, instituting systems based on freedom and equality for all, we will ask how this plays out today: how recognizing “humanity” both allows for equality between people, and for new forms of discrimination.
