Human Rights in Transit: Study Abroad to London
Description: With the city of London as its focus, this course will explore human rights in the context of global migration. As migration has become an increasingly global phenomenon, more and more immigrant-receiving countries around the world find themselves embroiled in similar debates over immigration, citizenship and political asylum. Human Rights in Transit will examine cultural representations (art, literature, film and photography) of global migration and belonging, with particular emphasis on London’s rich past of immigration and present emphases on national security. This Discovery Theme initiative is facilitated by the Office of International Affairs. To participate, students must enroll in English 4554: Global Human Rights and English
Studies (SU 19) for three credit hours. This course will convene two weeks prior to the actual London trip, which will run from June 16-22, 2019. Students are encouraged to attend an information session scheduled on November 8th, from 3:30 - 4:30 in Denney Hall, Room 447.
