Class Notes:
Course Description: This course explores the relationship between race and human rights in the United States. It pays special attention to the connections between two separate but related dynamics: the ways that people of color have engaged the language of human rights and the ways that the state responded, often with a language of human rights that advanced imperial ends and strengthened a carceral apparatus. This course particularly examines how incarcerated individuals throughout the 20th century engaged the framework of human rights to call for improved prison conditions and make connections to global movements for justice.
